HARD DRIVE USERS 

For those of you with hard drives, 
an install program has been pro- 
vided. Simply double-click on the 
Install' icon and the install script 
will run. When asked lor the name 
of the device you wish to install 
TurboPrint on, simply enter the 
device name of your drive (such as 
OHO:. MOO., and so on) and press 
return. A drawer called TurboPrint 
will be created on the selected 
device and all the relevant files will 
be copied on to your disk Now you 
can run TurboPrtnt by opening the 
TurboPrint drawer and double-click- 
ing on the TurboPrefs icon. 



THE MOST ANNOYING 

thing about owning a printer for 
your Amiga is thr way that 
Workbench handles print outs, or 
rather, the way it doesn'L 

It is particularly annoying when 
you know that your printer is capa- 
ble of much more, but it is restricted 
In the primitive drivers used by 
Workbench. 

Well, here at Amiga Format we 
have the answer for you. TurboPrint - 
on the Coverdisk of this issue. 






For perfect printing from your Amiga, TurboPrint gets 
results. Don't believe us? Try your Coverdisk out now! 



Why TurboPrint? 

TurboPrint was designed to combat 
the deficiencies of the Workbench 
preferences drivers. Although the 
printer drivers which are supplied 
with Workbench are customised for 
certain types of printers, they do not 
necessarily take advantage of fea- 
uires specific to a particular model. 

The real power of TurboPrint is 
its use of advanced dither modes. 
These, when applied to the maxi- 
mum printer resolution, produce 



much more representative shades 
and give output a greater dynamic 
range. Or in other words, your pic- 
tures look better. If you don't bclirw 
us, try it for yourself- but take a look 
at the two pictures shown here. 

Both originate from a hand scan- 
ner image taken from last month's 
issue, but one was printed out with 
norma) preferences, while the other 
used TurboPrint. Guess which is 
which. TurboI*rint also allows you to 
take more control over your output. 



with slider controlled contrast, 
brightness and colour correction 
and an aspect ratio slider. Put sim- 
ply, if you have a printer, you need 
this utility. 

How to get started 

To nin TurboPrtnt simply double- 
dick on the TurboPrefs icon. After 
accessing the disk a screen will 
appeal giving information about 
Irsce Soft. Click in the 'OK' box in 
the bottom right-hand corner and a 
new window will appear displaying 
the TurboPrint controls. 

For more information on the 
controls, please sec the annotated

diagram below. Initially it is only nec- 
essary lo select ihe correct driver ioi 
the printer von are using. 

Select a printer driver using the 
requester in the bottom left of die 
window. The scroll bar to ihe right 
ill ihe window will allow you to move 
up and down the list. Note that many 
of the drivers come in more than 
cine resolution. The actual dpi reso- 
lution is shown at the end of the 
driver name. This allows you to 
selecl the resolution any output will 
be printed at 

Having done this, select the C^all

window. This will call up the second 

rurbol*nni window, which replaces 

the printer preference functions 

from Workbench. Again the func- 
tions of this window are explained in 
die diagram below, but there are 
only a few that need worry you to 
Ix-gin with. 

The first is the "Shade', selected

using a colour printer, this must be 
Set to li&W or 'Greyscalc'. For art- 
work, except line art. it is most likely

The other important button is in 
the top right. Here you must select 



ihe port that your printer is con- 
ne< ted to. Most people will find that 
their printer is connected to the par- 
allel port (marked as die printer 
port on the rear of many Amigas). 
bin if you have a serial printer or a 
second parallel port, you may have 
to change this. 

When diese changes have been 
made to your satisfaction, select use 
from the bottom right of the win- 
dow. You will be returned to the 
initial TurboPnnt window. It is a good 
idea to select die save option here 
(about halfway down on the right) to 
save extra effort evervtirne you run 
TwrbaPrinL Select 'Use* from the very 
bottom right corner and the window 
will disappear. 

Attempting to print 

Everything is OK, TurboPrint is still 
resident in the Amiga's memory, but 
the window has closed down. In 
order to see the fruits of Tut1xil*rint's 
labour, you must attempt to print 
something out.

THE DAVE 

ROBERTS 

COLUMN 



Dave Roberts Is the ex 
deputy editor of trade 
magazine CTW, now a 
globe-trotting computer 
industry insider. 



THE BIRTH OF the Amiga CD 32 is something of a miracle. But 
that is definitely not to say rt is an immaculate conception. 

Its arrival is miraculous simply because of the perilous posi- 
tion of Commodore. A few months ago, having announced 
single quarter losses of $177.6 million, the firm looked to have 
as much future as the average royal marriage. Now they are 
planning to make a great technological leap forward and lead 
the games industry Into a new era. 

Sounds unlikely? Well, in all truth, it Is. The Amiga CD 32 is a 
good machine, the best on the market. Technically it is well 
ahead of other attempts to usher in the much -anticipated CD 
age, such as Sega's Mega CO. But its success will not be deter- 
mined by processor speeds and colour palettes alone. The CD 32 
has to triumph in a cold, tough marketplace, not some young 
inventor of the year competition. 



things will have the biggest influence on its success or 
otherwise: software support and sheer financial clout to put 
behind a marketing campaign. 

The software support seems there already. Commodore 
estimates that there will be around 80 titles on the market by 
Christmas - including the biggest games (Jurassic Park, Mortal 
Kombat Lemmings, Sensible Soccer) from the biggest names 
(Ocean, Acclaim, Sony). 

But in truth, this Is just armchair support. The CD 32 is a very 
close relative of the A1200 and almost all of these titles are 
simply ports with a few extra levels and a funky soundtrack. 

The real season-ticket holding support that Commodore 
want and that will create a real reason to switch to CO, will 
consist of games designed specifically for the machine, games 
designed to take advantage of the extra storage, double speed 
drive, FMV capabilities and the like; that sort of support may be 
harder to come by. 

Publishers' development resources are finite. A lot of manu- 
facturers are clamouring for their time and money, and some 
may be even more persuasive than Commodore. 

In their favour. Commodore do have excellent relationships 
with most major software houses, and can call on friends 
rather than business associates to back their baby. But good 
sales and mass market potential will do a lot more than a little 
geniality here and there. 

In the UK, Commodore have set a '93 sales target of 
200,000 and will look to improve on that considerably in '94. 
Good sales and mass market potential, definitely. And the 
goals are realistic because the UK market is already geared up. 

There is a huge and loyal Amiga fraternity, both among 
consumers and. perhaps more importantly, retailers. In the UK 
the Amiga stands a chance. People will be made aware of it 
without Commodore having to match the quite incredible 
marketing resources of the console boys which, of course, it 
simply can't. 

But lef s not be parochial about this. What about the rest of 
the world? Love it as we do, it is a fact that the Amiga was not 
a huge global success. It only ever really took off in Europe and 
only went Turbo in certain countries in Europe. The US and 
Japan remain oblivious to its charms so in those territories, 
there is no base and no brand to build on. 

Publishers like Electronic Arts, Sony, Acclaim and the like 
are global concerns, they will not develop for a machine that 
only enjoys local success - and even if Commodore manage to 
crack the whole of Europe, that may still be considered local by 
these guys' standards. 

Commodore know this and have ambitions to strike in the 
States next year, but that could take more money, much more 
money, than Commodore have - even though some trade pun- 
dits believe that after two more quarters of loss the firm will 
be making a profit again by Christmas. 

Commodore's UK general manager David Pleasance has 
said that the firm is putting everything they have behind 
Amiga CD 32 . The firm's future depends on it and so only a fool 
would doubt his word. The question is, will everything 
Commodore have be enough? 



COMMODORE 
NAME ICL TO 




WANG 



COMMODORE HAVE ANNOUNCED a deal with UK service giants ICL The agreement 
involves CBM's complete sales operation including warehousing, pack configuration, sys- 
tem support and distribution to Amiga distributors, retailers and customers. ICL will also 
provide full warranty support services, similar to those presently offered by Wang. 

This leaves the present service agents, Wang, with the obligation of continuing support 
for warranties taken up by customers until the ICL sign up. When the service contract was 
put out to tender, Wang were turned down in favour of ICL who could combine this service 
with a large UK warehouse and distribution network, underutilised in the recent PC slump. 

The ICL announcement follows a strained period in the CBM-Wang relationship. During the 
summer Wang were unable to fulfil their obligations due to a shortage of parts, which partic 
inarly hit A4000 owners. Commodore say these shortages were due to motherboard 
revisions, but the delays caused ill-feeling between Wang, CBM and Amiga dealers. 

Terry Wicks from Wang UK reassured AF that the parting of ways was 'amicable and 
positive' and that the loss of the Commodore contract did not hinder Wang's future plans. 

And ICL are optimistic. General manager of ICL's system service, David Polk, says: 
"There is no question that this is a different marketplace for us, but we have the resources 
and know-how that makes this a logical and exciting extension to our business".

GAMES OF A DIFFERENT CLASS

According to ELSPA, most games will remain exempt

THEY (STILL) LOVE US WHAT A GENIUS! 



FOR THE FOURTH consecutive 
year the UK's computer leisure 
industry have voted Amiga Format 
as their favoured mag when H _ 
comes to making stocking deci- 
sions. This means that they rate 
our reviews above all others when 
they decide what they are going 
to sell and what they'll pass up. 
We also won the 'Best Mag' 
category in the industry newspa- 
per Computer Trade Weekly's 
annual poll. We'd like to thank 
everyone who voted for us, and 
we won't let this go to our head. 
Expect more of the same (only 
better) from Format in future.

organisers, Future Events, have lined up 
special attractions for each of the days. 

On the opening day, Thursday 1 1th, 
Channel Four's cult TV show 
GamesMaster is to go on air live from the 
FES, marking the first time a TV show has 
ever been broadcast in its entirety from a 
computer related exhibition. And anyone

up, £4,000. 

Last year's national competition was 
hugely popular and this year it is set for 
success with the regional finals being 
increased to include East Anglia, 
Yorkshire, and Northern and Southern 
Ireland. Backed by Commodore, Sega 
and Nintendo, the heats will be held in 
Virgin's Games Centres and Megastores

CD REPAIR 



Since CD is about to become the hot new medium on the computer data 
storage block. Some CD maintenance is going to be required. Anyone 
who watched Judith Hann's magnificent exhibition on Tomorrow's 
World in the early Eighties will know that you can spin dry a CD then 
smear it with honey and rub it off with sand-paper. You can do this, 
but anyone who has tried it will realise that it does nothing whatso- 
ever for the data integrity of the disc. So don't right. 

If you do handle your discs carefully, you may still find you 
suffer from the odd scratch or abrasion. That's where Bundee 
CD3 Repair System comes in! Tomorrow's World tested it in 
February this year, but unfortunately they didn't use Judith 
Hann's old disc!

REAL DRIVING THRILL 

On the Commodore stand at the Australian Woild ot (.ommodoie Show was something 
that looked remarkably like the mid-section of a Formula One Grand Prix car. The car is 
the brainchild of Rich Matthews and ex-motor racing driver John Crookc. both Amiga 
and motor racing fans who thought it would be fun to bring an extra element of realism 
to MicroProse's FIGPgame. The set up allows the 'driver' to control the program from 
the near recumbent position of a real racing driver. The control method is via realistic 
race car pedals and a 
racing steering 

wheel, and it's as 
near to real driving 
as you could experi- 
ence outside of a car. 
The pair plan to 
start a race meeting 
series at bars around 
Australia. Entrants 
will be able to com- 
pete for a cash prize, 
and winners of the 
heats will be brought 
together to compete 
for 'big prizes* on 

Visitors to the Australian World of Commodore Show had th* chance to 
Adelaide Grand Prix, try out MicroProse's F1GP in realistic style. .

WITH HIS BACKSIDE planted (irmly in 
tli«- hm srai at Commodore UK, David Pleasanee is 
not there just for the ride. His first three months 
have been among Commodore's most financially 
difficult and. for the firm to have a successful 
future, his every decision has to he the right one. 

But is he the man for the job? Bullish and 
straight-talking. Pleasanee says he's "a hunter, not 
a farmer", and as work experience goes, no-one's 
could be more diverse. He's travelled ihe world as 
a bus conductor, scaffolder. flamenco guitarist 
and. more recently, a salesman, so he's certainly 
got all angles covered. We sat down with him for 
some no-nonsense talking to find out how he 
plans to lead the Amiga into Number One spoL 

£?: Let's start off with one of Commodore's most 
recent move* - the A1200 price reduction- Given 
that it was selling strongly, why lower the cost? 

Well, one can say it was selling strongly, but you 
have to look at the whole picture. The UK wasn't 
doing too badlv. but we have a lot on inventory in 
the field all over Europe. 

And frankly Commodore needs cash-flow at 
the moment so it's in our interest to boost sales. 
We know July and August is the highest time for 
all computer sales, so we made the decision and 
implemented it very hastily. 

This is a strange Industry - we sell to the High 
Street multiples direct and we also sell to distribu- 
tors who in turn sell to the independent trade. 
Now we price-support all of those people to whom 
we sell. We don't price-support out to the people 
who they' sell to. [This means independent! can 
lose money when the price is lowered - .A/.] We 
know distributors 1 inventory levels of the A 1200 
are quite low so 1 don't think that's a problem. 
Product prices always come down in this industry. 

G>: But the price of the A500 held for a long time? 

Yes. but the reason why that is no longer valid is 
because the price ot PCs has now come down to a 
point which is affecting that- We were £400 for 
three years and now, if you look at what you can 
buy a 38t> machine for. it's more in touch with the 
AtiOO. So that's why we dropped the price of the 
A600 and brought the A 1200 in line with that. 

Also, of course, it lakes the pressure off us in 
terms of the image and impact it's going to have. 
We want to sell both machines side by side. We will 
have a pack on the A 1200 before Christmas at 
£349 - a good pack with some games, word 
processing and an software - a little bit more seri- 
ous than our previous packs. 

The flack we're going to get now is that we've 
squeezed margins, but our view is that they're bet- 
ter off making a smaller margin on a real sale than 
a higher one on something that isn't selling loo 
well. We're really confident - Comet have just told 
us that their sales have tripled since the price 
reduction. That's through 250 stores. 

£*: What about the customers' feelings though? 
What with the A500 Plus coming and going, and 
the A600 coming and dropping in price twice, and 
now the A 1200 dropping in price, mere will be a 
lot of people who have effectively given away an 
A500. Does that ever come into the equation? 

At the end of the day we can't Ik- all things to all 
people. We've done many trade-in offers over the 
years, usually followed by a price drop. In fact it's 
become almost predictable, so that both the trade 




The past, 




& the future 

Commodore UK has had a major influence on recent Amiga development, 
so Marcus Dyson finds out what UK boss David Pleasanee is planning... 



and the end users know what's going to happen. 
We used to do surveys: 'We'll do a trade-in with 
the C64 and give you an A500 for x pounds, what 
do you think?' and they'd say 'Brilliant idea, but I 
don't want io give up my C64\ 

Over the years we've gone to a loi of trouble 
to make our advancements compatible. Bui the 
day will come when we will have to move to a new 
platform to keep pace with technology advance- 
ments. Certainly any of the RISC technology thai 
we're looking to implement on our high-end 
machines will migrate downwards. 



£>: But would the high-end RISC machine you talk 
about be an Amiga as well? 

Yes. Totally, but it will 1m- impossible to maintain 
rompaiihlitv. We're talking about a custom chip 
sei thai will be 10 times more powerful than the 
ACA we've just launched. To maintain compatibil- 
ity would mean giving up too much, and we need 
to go forward. 

When it is finished, it will be a business prod- 
uct initially, and it's going to be the most 
marvellous reward for people's Amiga loyalty over 



18 



ihe years because they will have a full 586 compati- 
blity machine with an edge that nobody else has 
got in the world. 

^D: So what you're talking about is an Amiga 
Power-Pentium [RISC-based PCI machine? 



Yes. 



£>: Will it be running MS-DOS-based applications? 

It will be running through Windows NT. This is 
because the RISC technology gives us the opportu- 
nity to migrate into that arena. So you will be able 
to take any piece of software that runs through 
Windows NT and it will run on our machine five 
limes faster than on the Pentium. 

®: What sort of price will it be? We're looking at 
£5,000 Pentiums at the moment. 

We will be in line with Pentium's price and offer- 
ing substantially more because we'll have Triple-A 
chips, with 10 times the capability of AGA. 
Theoretically, on this machine you can put Mac 
chips on it - it's going to be a totally flexible box! 

£*: As far as prices go do you think you will 
reduce the A4000/40 again? 

I don't know. The price difference between the 
'030 and the '040 is probably too much, so may be 
we'll put up the '030. The difference between chip 
costs on the machines is huge - they really are 
charging a premium on the '040. If that comes 
down then we might consider it 

3>: Who's producing your processors currently? 

We design the chips and Hewlett Packard do all 
the wafers and that stuff, then we Beta test and 
they go into full production. It will be Hewlett 
Packard's RISC technology that we will be using. 

£5: When will we see this? 

Around next July. 

®: We've heard rumours of Epson investing in 
Commodore. Is it true? 

I'd like to be able to say yes. because it wouldn't 
do us any harm. But the only involvement they 
have with us is to do with distribution. 

®: Are you still manufacturing Amigas in the IK. 
at Irving, Scotland? 

No. We've got a new facility in the Phillipines. 
Irving did very well, but it wasn't really a practical 
situation financially. 

®: What was it that created the difficulties in 
supplying A4000s? 

We ordered according to customer forecasts and 
we all got it wrong. That's the bottom line. 

But I have to tell you now - we have got a 
problem with the A4000s. I don't know exactly 
what it is because I'm not technical, but there 
appears to be a problem with the daughterboard 
which controls the hard drives. W r e think it's some- 
thing to do with condensation - the Phillipines is a 
really moist place. We've got all our people look- 
ing at it now. 



£>: Is that the error that sees the A4000 lose data 
when it gets more than 90 per cent full? 

No, it's just that the hard drives don't operate. It's 
a really weird fault - it's a functionality problem. 
However, we've got our distributors - and it's only 
going to the distributors, we haven't got it in the 
High Street yet - to go through their stock and 
pull out anything that is suspect, so that it's not 
going to get shipped in the field. But. of course, 
what has been shipped in the field you will proba- 
bly get some feedback from. 

*&: Commodore have always managed to have the 
best hardware, but it's not always been marketed 
effectively. Are we going to see that change now? 

Commodore eorporately have learnt a lesson. We 
have been successful here in the UK because we 
adopted a strategy. Commodore US now realise 
that this pocket of excellence is here in the UK, we 
are now the leaders in their eyes. 

The company is pulling together with bundles 
- we will have pan-European bundles, and what- 
ever software we put in the A1200 pack will be 
pan-European. And we're also doing pan- 
European advertising. So I think you will see a 
significant change. 

Ever since Salman [Amiga and software bun- 
dle], which put us on the map big-time, and with 
only one or two exceptions, I think the pack stan- 
dards have been well maintained. But I think the 
A1800 needs more of a diverse approach. 

We look at the A1200 as a more serious prod- 
uct because it is much more powerful, so I think if 
we're going to do the A 1200 justice, we've got to 
put things in the pack which the end user will con- 
sider real value for money, rather than just a 
gimmicky game. The problem is that a lot of the 
lilies I would like are not coming out until 
September, and I want something before then so I 
can get the pack ready. 

£?: Have you thought of supplying IDE hard disks 
ready installed with AI200s? 

The problem is that we can't really buy hard disks 
any cheaper than end users can because people 
are working on such slim margins. And we are too, 
so to be competitive we can't do that. 

®: The feedback we've been getting is that when 
users see low-cost Macs and PCs out there, and 
they don't see hard disks as added extras any 
more, they think that without a hard drive the 
A 1200 is not in 'serious computer' territory. 

Commodore generally have been selling hard disk 
versions of the A1200, and they haven't been sell- 
ing as well as ones without hard disks, which are 
then being upgraded by the end user. 

Even though we were successful, 1 think we 
made a huge mistake with the packs last year. 
They weren't very strong - what the hell does 
Wild. Weird. Wicked mean? We also confused our 
consumers - we had the A500, Cartoon Classics, 
the standalone A600s. WWWs and Epic packs, the 
standalone A1200, and then the Comic Relief 
packs. So the end user had seven bloody choices 
of Amiga! How do they know which one to buy? 
It's crazy! 

Anyway, in an ideal world what I would like is 
possibly two askews of the Amiga CD 32 , because I 
might look to sell one with the FMV module fitted 
and therefore have some software which uses that. 



And then have just one A 1200 bundle at £349. 
That, for me. makes a lot more sense. 

There will be AoOOs in the market, but there 
won't be many left by October. Most of the A600s 
are going to Poland and places like that where the 
price is right for their market. And with the A500s 
we're almost out of them - the only reason we 
kept them in manufacture was because we have 
commitments to catalogues - in Germany A500s 
are still in catalogues. 

£>: Can we briefly talk about Kelly Sumner, 
Mike Gosheron and Gary Lewis leaving 
Commodore? I think a lot of people saw it as rats 
deserting a sinking ship... 

I was very surprised to see Kelly leave - I mean I 
travelled all over the world for three years to avoid 
taking this job simply because I consider myself to 
be a hunter, not a farmer. I first refused the job 
because I considered America to be more of a 
challenge, but when we decided not to release the 
CD machine in the US, it changed. Anyway, Kelly 
had been quite close with Mark Lewis at 
Electronic Arts, and I think Kelly sees his opportu- 
nity very similar to that of Mark's. 

f ZP: You seem to be much more involved, person- 
ally, than some of your predecessors. 

I am 100 per cent committed to this industry. Not 
just Commodore, although of course their inter- 
ests come first, but to the industry as a whole. You 
know, I've worked my way up in this company - I 
started off as a salesman - and I know all sides of 
my job very well. I truly believe in the Amiga and 
am committed to Commodore getting it right. 

£p: Do you think it's possible for Commodore to 
get as hungry again as they were when the A500 
was launched? 

I think so. Quite clearly we've now determined 
which direction we're going in - we've got to be 
lean and mean. We now know we are an Amiga 
company and we're going to concentrate only on 
32-bit technology. Hopefully within a year, when 
we've got the new product in the business market. 
our position worldwide should be very strong. 

£>: What about the A600? Where do you think it 
now fits in? 

There's a lot of inventory out in the field, but the 
sales are pretty poor on it. It doesn't fit in and 
that's why we're not manufacturing it anymore. 
It's sad because it's nice to have a £199 price 
point. Now we're going to be starting at a £299 
price - we're bringing out the world's best games 
playing machine. I'd like to sell it at a higher 
price, but I think £299 is the right price to get 
aggressive, to really get some numbers in. 

I believe it is the most significant product that 
Commodore has ever launched. By Christmas 
we'll be in the black and in 1994, with this busi- 
ness product I was talking about which 1 think will 
be very profitable, we will be developing the new 
technology into a whole different realm. 

What you're seeing now - the A1200. '030 
and CD 32 - it's all Lew Eggebrecht's stuff. The guy 
knows exactiy where we're going, and he's the first 
person in years. He does what this company needs. 
I think this new machine will give us the where- 
withal! to bring out the next generation of Amigas. 
We've really got such a fantastic futurp... £&

Richard Baguley takes the top off the CD 32 , and 
has a look inside... page 4 of the supplement 



Everybody's talking about Commodore's new 

32-bit wonder console. But we've gone one 

step further, we're not just talking, we've 

written it all down too. So when you bought 

this issue of Amiga Format there should have 

been a 20-page supplement fastened to the 

back. Here's what you'll find inside it... 



LEW EGGEBRECHT 

Commodore's vice president of engineering 
explains the machine on page 4 of the supplement 




10 PAGES OF ESSENTIAL CD SOFTWARE PR 





Lawnmower Man is being developed for some CD formats. Is 
CD 32 going to be one of them? 




Will the new and improved Pinball Fantasies 
cause yet more disruption in the AF office? 



Ocean's Inferno has a few weird looking aliens, but has it got 
what it takes to be an out of this world success? 



THE AMIGA FORMAT CD 32 SUPPLEMENT 




FROM CDTV TO CD 32 



Read all about the history of Amiga CD, and what 
led to CD 32 .., page 16 of the supplement 




DAVID PLEASANCE 

Commodore's general manager tells why the CD 32 
is a Mega CD beater... page 19 of the supplement 



In this month's fact packed CD 32 
supplement you'll find two pages 
bursting with technical information 
on the new console, and 
Commodore's VP of engineering. 
Lew Eggebrecht talks us through 
the new machine. Millennium 



programmer, Toby Simpson, gives 
us the inside line on a developer's 
perspective of the machine. 

We have a look at the history of 
the CD storage medium, and how 
it has affected the Amiga. And 
Commodore general manager 



David Pleasance explains what the 
machine means to The Big C. 
But what it's really about is 
games, and we've got em. 10 
pages of CD 32 games news, with 
more info on more games than 
you'll find anywhere else. 



EVIEWS IN YOUR STUNNING SUPPLEMENT 





Syndicate has already caused a storm on the A 1200, 
can it do the same on CD 32 ? 



Flair's Oscar is a colourful arSd cute platformer, but can 
it offer anything new? 





Will Millenium's Diggers make it to the completion in 
time to be called •the first CD32 game ever 1 ? 



Putty one scored a massive 95%, will Putty2 CD32 be 
hugely successful, or just huge (or neither)?

Do you sometimes dream of all Amiga games costing a reasonable price and being of such high standards that 

Amiga Format could only ever award Golds' to games we reviewed? Well, it could all become true if the new 

generation of independent software houses have anything to do with it. we find out what their plans are... 



SOMETHING IS KILLING p» P

chart countdown when most of the stuM sound*

And just .is c orporatc values, relentless 
mark e ti ng and lacklustre products have 
reduced the goldmine that was pup music to 
another struggling industry, thev threaten 
to d<i the same to computer games. The 
■■jnevhuying publn don"l need high 
prices, irap games and new formats every 
other week. What we need is solid game- 
play, value (or moncv and good customer 
support. But who's going 10 give it to us? 

The nation's top software houses are all 
giant corporations ll is just possible thai the ) 
have lost sight of what the public reallv want in

So who will suv< 11*- from (his morass, if 
mil ihe big. corporate businesses/ II we 
loot b.c k at the tradition.il vouth market- 
place of records, we may find our answer. 
VV ailing in the wing a whole host of 

young, exciting software houses just wait- 
ing to blow your socks off. These

games business. Small, enthusiastic and

Bui the brat

money you spend on these games won't go on buy- 
ing executives a new BMW , or on employing a 
whole marketing department, or on flash new 
-ilices. It will go on paying the programmers a 
decent wage JIM I on developing the next game. 

These guys aren't programming the Amiga 
their accountants tell them to. but 
because thev love the machine. Because thev 
believe they can bring new heights of plavahihiv 



and new creative twists to Amiga games. In some 
cases they are Public Domain OOOSffl (and we all 
know what a good PI) coder can gel out of the 
Amiga). In other rases bam are established 
programmers who are just sick of being ground bv

A RECENT ADDITION to the Amiga 

developing community. Euphoria were created in January 
1993 by Laurens van der Donk and Mario van Zeist. Before starting the 

company, they were pan of a development team called Boys Without 
Brains, who were responsible for the games Hawkeyeand Himbo's Quest 

The other members of the BWB team are Arthur van Jole. whose hobbies 
are fishing and graphics: Hein Holt, bird watching, graphics and music; 
Harald Holt, puzzles and programming; Rick Hoekman, nature loving and 
music; Lars Verhoef. counting cars and graphics; Jacco van het Riet, collect- 
ing clumps, graphics and layouts; Roger Large, mushroom specialist and 
ideas. Roger L.argr* is part "I .111 English distribution house 
called Profile, and he's helping the company get on its feel by 
handling the public relations in this country. 

The boys are very much Amiga enthusiasts, and they are 
not frightened of saying so. "We were never interested in 
doing any PC stuff." says l.uirrns. "we just don't like those 
machines really, and Disposable Hero shows you that von 
don't need a console for a good game." 

He continues: "The reason we started our own com- 
pany was that we wanted to get more involved with the 
product. In the past we sold games to software houses, 
hut we losi all control over projects, 1 mean sometimes 
we didn't even agree about the artwork that was used. 
We think there is some great talent in Holland, but there is not a 
games publishing house here." 

So. having almost completed Disposable Hero, a demo of which was fea- 
tured on the Coverdisk of Amiga Format issue 47. the boys' confidence is 
riding high. The game is a shoot-em-up in the style of Project X. but with a few 
neat features thrown in to make it different. 

"We started D-Hero about the beginning of 1992." says Laurens. "We basi- 
cally wanted to take a simple idea and make it look like an arcade game as 
much as possible - a game with lots of detailed animation." 

It's also blessed with some spectacular background graphics, which are 




some of the best seen on an AfiOO game. But have they con- 
sidered developing for the A 1200? 

"We think the A1200 is a great machine, and we're think- 
ing of doing a special AGA version of Disposable Hero foi il. 
After Ihsposable Hen*, we're going to start a new arcade adven- 
ture, which will be in the stvlc of the console game Isgiiid of'Mda" 

This is a game which, in its third incarnation, recently went "ii sale in 
Japan, selling six million copies in the lirsi week. Mavl>e Euphoria wmi'i In- 
looking for quite this level of success wiih (heir game, but Laurens' emphasis 
is on the game, not the financial rewards, lie says: 

"The problem with the big companies is they .ire just thinking about big 
money and not of the quality of a game..." 





COMING FROM SWEDEN, the Digital Illusions crew were borne of top 
demo coders The Si lent v and they can speak English In fact they try to prac- 
tice it as much as possible ■ so we had to considerably cut down this interview' 

"We became Digital Illusions in 1991," top man Fredrik Liliegren told us. 
"Today's team consists of eight people, plus three guys freelancing on the PC 
We live spread out all over Sweden so we don't meet often, perhaps once every 
two months or so, but we keep In contact with phone calls and modems. 
We started off with five people, although we changed graphics artists a couple 
of times during the development of Pintail." 

What made you write a pinball game? Are you pinball freaks? 
"Yes. The idea of a pinball game probably came up because we like to play it," 
says Frednk. "We had some ideas of how to eas- 
ily compete with the few pinball games alreac' 
on the market. The best idea came from a frie 
m Denmark who had been drawing some ove 
sued pinball tables that looked good, so we 
started working with those But they were t 
big and had to be rearranged to be pi ay at 
so we got a Swedish graphics guy instead 

The team working on the original gan 
Pintail Dreams, had full time jobs or stud 
les. and so it took three years to complete 
Pintail Fantasses took much lass time, and 
was one of the success stories of last year. 
Why does Fredrik think it was successful 1 
"The public really wanted it. because If you look I 
the game it's not really a stunning experience In itself The . 
tic feel, together with the old and well-known pinball concept was 
made the product a hit. Our guess is that we filled a gap in the market.' 

How difficult was it to get the game published? 

"It wasn't really hard." says Frednk. "because 21st Century wanted the 
game when they first saw it. We tried to get other people interested as well, to 
be able to get a more complete look of the average payment we could request 
other publishers said It wouldn't sell, or that it didn't fit their style. "

Now will Pintail Illusions improve on Fantasies? Will it just be the 
me game with different tables? 
"Well we're not working on it yet" says Fredrik. "even though we've 
i lot of planning for it. But don't worry, it will definitely support multi 
ball in one way or another and there will probably be an AGA version as well. 
We have to completely rewrite most of the code to be able to improve It 
enough, but we're sure if II only be for the good of the game. The ball mechan 
ks must be totally rearranged, but we must not lose the feel of it and that * 
probably what will take the longest to do." 





THE HIDDEN ARE a three-man outfit operating from sunny Great 
Yarmouth on the east coast of Britain. The three. Craig Howard, Simon 
Leggett and William Bell, met on a computer course in 1989, when Will was 
creating a text adventure, but needed graphics and a story to back it up. 

They began programming seriously around August last year, resulting 
in an arcade platform game, Donk! (nee Dong!, which many of you will 
have seen immortalised on the Amiga Format issue 45 Coverdisk). After 
securing a deal with distributors DM), the guys were set to release Donk! 
in March this year, but the demise of DMI set things back. Now, though, 
they have signed the game over to Supervision, the newly formed soft- 
ware branch of Waddingtons. who will release it in the next few months. 

"With Donk! we basically wanted to produce a game which sticks a big 
prod at the consoles. We wanted a game which, although it had the familiarity 
of something like Zool, played much in its own unique way. Hopefully we 
have done this. Technically it's pretty good - you'll find more aliens on screen 

than something like Sonic 2, and also 
on the A 1200 a lot more colours." 
On the strength of the demo we 
have recently received, Donk! is look- 
ing even better, and the AGA version 
looks excellent. The Hidden's commit- 
ment to the Amiga is obvious. 

"There's nothing that can really 
touch it, especially now the price has 
come down," enthuses Craig 

Will The Hidden create games for 
other platforms? 

"Probably not ourselves, but we 
would licence out our products for 
other formats. Converting an Amiga 
game to the Mega Drive is easy 
and if it were proved that we 
would benefit, I think we would. 

Donk! disguises himself as Mala Hari and " w * "ill always develop on 

sneaks quietly past the pink knobbly thing... the Amiga first because it's the

most expand- 
able platform, and 
you can port across 
to everything from 
the Amiga, but if ft 

not so easy the other way around. If we did make money this way, rt would be 
to fund the Amiga side of things. This is where we intend to stay." 

But what about the high level of piracy in the Amiga game industry? 

"We've been careful not to give out the full game," says Craig, "but we 
realise once Donk! is on sale it will be hacked and appear on a Bulletin Board. 
People send me disks of games and they've copied things like Soccer Kid and 
if s pathetic They're going to wonder why Amiga enthusiasts like us begin to 
look at other systems. If s sad, and it's the worst part of it. 

"We still believe if s the best market, because if s so varied. The Amiga is 
the last real home computer. The technical side is brilliant, value for money 
side of the equipment is brilliant and the only way its market will die is 
through people stealing software." 

The Hidden have games under construction, including an isometric adven- 
ture and a 3D space game, which is likely to be A1 200 specific. "Hopefully if 
Donk! does well," says Craig, "we can afford to get more programmers, and 
so get more products out. We will only produce about three games a year, 
though - top-quality products. So, we're still going to support the Amiga, and 
hopefully produce a few PD games along the way."

CHgrusI Illusions have lots of >

HardCore - The Blast, the ultimate

started with the concept of 
lo+drvnnvr (CM classic) and 
liniwanfi. but ended up looking like 
neither ; and lastly Reality, a top-down 
car racing game 

So will the success of Fantaut 
inspire other software developers? 

"We're quite sure that a lot of 
people out there have been inspired 
by our success, and we hope that they 
have the will and strength to put

SET-UP BY THREE 

former Future journalists 

(including vx-:\mif*ti Format 
editor. Boh Wade) Asylum 
are a Bath-based software 
house who are working on 
their first release '/jfwolf, 
which PR manage! And\ 
Smith describes as 'a solid 3D 
thinking man's shoot-em-up'. 
The other members are 
development manager Andv 
Wilton, and former Micro- 
Prose programmer Jim Gardner. 

And they're dedicated Amiga 
enthusiasts. "We love the Amiga ami 
firmly believe in the strength of the 
market. There are three million 
people out there who want to pla\ 
good games." says And) Smith. 

Asylum hope that smaller houses 
will proliferate in the future. "It 
sianed oil like a cottage industry and 
1 think the Amiga will return more lo 
these roots. Look at learn 17. they've produced great games - a smallish team 
having fun. I think we'll gel hellei games this way," savs Boh. 

Asylum are concentrating on games for all Amiga's, ami although they're 
keen not to alienate A500 users, they will be producing A 1 200-specific pro- 
grams in the future. As for the ( \) •*-, Bob savs: "I hope it succeeds. The price 
is good, if it drops even lower it will give the consoles a kick up the backside." 

The last word goes to Andv Smith: "We'll never lose sight of the fact thai 
the games are the most important thing - playing the games should In* as 
enjoyable as possible and people should feel they've spent their money well."

MILL 




MILL-KIT SOFTWARE LIVE up in Leeds, where it's 
grim, or so some say. But really it's not so grim, at least not for a software 
house with Mill-Kit's attitude, financial backing and project plans. And 
that's before we even mention their programming talent. 

Mill-Kit is a bit of a sideline for James Millard and Kevin Sanders, a sideline 
in that their main business is selling Amigas and the related peripherals and 



software. But it's a sideline that they are deadly serious about and they are 
putting their money where their mouth is. That money is buying them talent. 
Talent in the form of Adam Polanski. 

Adam has quite a track record in games programming having worked with 
both Argonaut, where he contributed to their StarWing SNES game, and Vector 
Graphix. Adam has applied his programming talents to The Killing Cloud, 
Shuttle, XF-50 Damocles, Birds of Prey and ATAC among others. So naturally 
Mill-Kit's first product will be a 3D game, yeah? 

No! Director James Millard explains: "It just never occurred to us, despite 
Adam's previous experience. I had a game design and I needed someone to 
realise it. I had been looking for a programmer for months, I'd arrange meet- 
ings for one, and I'd been kept watting. It was a nightmare. Then I was 
explaining my problem to a guy who knew who said 'my brother's a program- 
mer' and that's how I got together with Adam." 

What about the project they're working on? James says: "It's called 



*A 



Annihilator. It's a vertically scrolling 
shoot-em up. but with horizontal sec- 
tions in it too. Our philosophy is to 
offer quality games at good prices." 

So why the Mill-Kit name, it 
sounds a tad cynical? "It's a bit tongue 
in-cheek, I hope people will get that. 
Annihilator is going to be a three-disk 
game for £24.99. so we're giving value." 

Annihilator is set on a series of 
planets, and an invading alien horde 
(every shoot-em-up needs one) is hell K * 
bent on conquering Earth. The ship ''"' 

Annihilator has to venture to a series 

of worlds and defeat them. Each world has a completely different environment, 
and the aliens have adapted to meet this. On the Ocean planet there are sub- 
aqua aliens, on the forest world they are tree dwellers, and so on. And each 
world requires different tactics and different weapons. 

The weapons are collected, in timeless fashion as pick-ups. The plan is for 
some of the pick-ups to be useless for the next fighting environment so 
when you collect them, the ship's computer gives a sampled sound warning. 



nd Mill Kit. 




A YEAR AGO, in Helsinki. Finland, a few demo-programming friends 
got together to write a game. They were sick of big companies producing 
poor-quality games at inflated prices. The result was Bloodhouse, a name 
which, if their first effort Stardust is anything to go by. you are likely to hear 
more and more of in the future. 

Featured on A/49's Coverdisk. Stardust is a version of the coin-op classic 
Asteroids, brought up-to-date with a Hurry of ray-traced graphics and a roekin' 
soundtrack. To press home their stand against the big-priced games, they sold 
Stardust in Britain for £16.99, a good £9 under the usual full prit e for games. 

The people working on the Bloodhouse games generally keep their 
demo handles' rather than use their real names, so we gel a Stardust 
team of Harri Tikkanen (ray-tracing and 
programming), SCH. X-ray. Destop 
(graphics). Rib and Bassbomb (music). 

Mika Laamanen is the bloke to 
talk to, since he's the coordinator of 
Bloodhouse. and the only one who 
speaks English. "Because we are our 
own bosses." say* Mika. "we can do 
pretty much what we want to do. 
Now we can release quality games 
with a very reasonable price. 

"If the public thinks that the 
price is right and Stardust is a suc- 
cess, then we can use this 
method to release more quality 
software with a low price." 

What inspired Stardust} 

"The coin-op game 
Blastrroids showed that the game 
formula could be spiced up pretty well. We 
thought that there wasn't a decent version of this type of 
game on the Amiga yet. so here wc are." 

As well as developing for the A500, Bloodhouse are also developing for 
the AGA machines. Mika is enthusiastic about the new machines: 

"We are developing three A 1200 games, and two of them will Ik- released 
for the A500 later on. The A1200 is an ideal machine for serious use. but the 
people who only play games should probably wait and see if it's worth the 
trouble to upgrade from an A300 to a 1 200. 

"As far as CD 32 is concerned, we haven't seen the system yet. but we know- 
its technical specifications. In our opinion a DSP chip, faster blitter and more 
hardware sprites would have made this system very special indeed. Compared 
to 3DO say. the technical specifications of this system are quite up-to-date. Of

LEFT: The gorgeous, super-se... OK. maybe not. It's Bloodhouse. anyway. 
Mika Laamanen's the one sitting down. 



course, software suppoi i is the thing that counts, though." 
Do ynii iliink dial the Amiga will succeed in the current market? 
at "The Amiga has a large user base, but the main problem is. of 
course, piracy. The software houses take a big risk if they invest a lot of 
lime and monev in a game that simplv won't sell because of piracy. It's 
a shame that such names like Lucas Arts are pulling out of the arena, 
but it seems like the only c hoice for a company like them tx-cause of the 
huge development lime and hard work that's gone into developing such 
games when the\ don't gain anv profit." 
So. now that Stardust is almost complete, what happens next? W.wv the 
team got anv other games in the pipeline? 

"There are several games in development at the moment. Flrshwartd, a 
fast-paced and rather violent platform shoot-em-up/ beat-em-up game. This 
will feature a rotoscoped main character, with TOOK of graphics per level and 
intelligent rotoscoped and ray-traced enemies. 

"We are also developing a cute platform game with a difference for the 
A1200, with a cut down version of the game to appear for the A">00 later on. 
Oilier projects include a very last vector shoot-em-up for the A 1200, and an 
ai cade adventure game for the A 1200." 



'Discard. Discard'. The music is 
being produced by John Stainton, 
and the graphics by Andy Fisher. 

But the shoot-envup has been 
done and done, most notably by 
Project X (from fellow Yorkshire 
boys Team 17) and SWIV. 

"When we were planning 
Annihilator we looked at SWIV, 
and yeah it's good, but there 
really hasn't been another 
great vertical scrolling shoot- 
em-up since then." 

Maybe that's because 
SWIV was so good? "We 
think we can bring some- t 
thing new to it" says Adam. T 
been programming the Amiga for 
years and PCs for four years. I know 
what I am doing!" 

"Our commitment to the Amiga 
is total," adds James, "and with any 
luck we'll be developing Annihilator 
for the CD 32 as welt. We'll be doing it 
for the PC too, but I don't suppose 
that really concerns you does it?" 




Cool and 

Moody, Andy Fither and 

Adam Polantki prepare themselves to , 

lords of all they survey... the AM York Rd. 

Their first game as Mil Kit is due out in 
October. With a deadline that tight you'd 
think they'd be too busy programming to 
stand around on footbridges posing like 
pop stars.

himself, could not a finer line have written. 'To eat or not to eat". Is a 
Fatman seems to have answered at »n early stage In his life. 



BLACK LEGEND IS a new kind of software house. And yet in many ways 
it's not a software house as such - it's more a vehicle which enables program- 
mers to get their software published and distributed without having vast sums 
of money behind them. 

Black Legend's founder, Richard Holmes, says: "We want a situation 
whereby talented programmers can get their software published without artifi- 
cial restrictions such as deadlines. There are so many talented Amiga fanatics 
out there that never get the chance for their work to be published." 

Richard Homes has lived most of his life in Switzerland, but intends to 
return to Britain soon, as his parents are from Manchester, which probably 
accounts for his rather strange accent! 

In some ways, Black Legend is similar in ideology to The Beatles' Apple 
organisation in the late Sixties, but with slightly less idealism and far more 
practicality. They have 10 offices in different European countries, from Russia 
to Scandinavia, with local contacts for the programmers who keep Richard 
Holmes up-to-date on who's working on what. Many of the programmers are 
part time and some even take holidays from their ordinary work to finish work- 
ing on games. It seems a new age in Amiga programming has arrived - an 
'alternative' Amiga programming scene, which can be nothing less than a posi- 
tive sign for the future. 

One game due to be released in the near future is Fatman, an unusual plat- 
former hailing from Poland with graphics not disimilar to the children's TV 
programme. Crystal Tips and Alistair - which can't be a bad thing. Also, a 
Project X type shoot-envup called Shenandoah should be making an appear- 
ance in the not-too-distant future. 



Another major plus for 
Black Legend is that they've 
joined up with Kompart UK 
who will act as their sales and 
marketing representatives. 

Kompart's Duncan 
Lowthian explains: "Black 
Legend approached us and 
asked us to sell their prod- 
ucts. Essentially we . 
point of contact and our rote 
is to represent the commercial 
face of Black Legend." 

With a wide variety of 
software coming out of 
Europe and with Kompart UK 
supporting them on the mar- 
keting side, the future looks 
bright for both Black Legend, 
and the Amiga.

VISION SOFTWARE WERE formed 

in 1991 with OIK aim - to produce lop quality arcade soft- 
ware lor ihc Amiga. Paul Andrews and Rodney Smith are the founders 
and hive since been joined by Damon Davies. die new programmer. Blair 
Zuppicich, who writes all the music, and Simon Armstrong from Acid 
Software who looks after the marketing side. 

So what have Vision done so far? Well there's Howry's World for 
a start. This game scored 84 per cent in AFM. "With Woody we set 
out to do the biggest platform game on the Amiga and do it well. 
Now that we've achieved this we're doing the most serious shoot- 
em-up that's ever been developed for the Amiga." says Simon. 

The shooi-em-up is Serk and Destroy, It's a helicopter game 
where the screen rotates around the player. Demos we've seen 
look vety impressrw. Vision say: "We're putting loads of speech 
and sound effects in and a vertical scrolling bonus section. 
The main emphasis is on destruction, non-stop destruction." 

So what about the AGA Amigas? "We like the AI200. It< 
a really good machine and it's going to allow us to do things 
that aren't possible on the A500. It also means thai the 
number of Amigas in the world is still growing strong." 

And CD-* 2 ? "We've onlv read about ii in AF. We are pleased with the 
six buttons on the control pad - that's definite proof that Commodore are 
H<>ing about things the right way." 

Vision arc dedicated Amiga enthusiasts. They say: "The Amiga was 

designed 1<»i < reativiiv. As soon as vou siaii talking l'< -s and < onsoles you stall 
talking marketing and huge overheads. Developing on the .Amiga means we 
can keep our own priorities and not have some suit dictate the terms." 

Is there a downside? "The onlv negative aspect of the Amiga scene is 
piracy. Commodore have sold millions of Amigas worldwide, however avail- 
ability of pirated software is crippling the industry." 

"But as a new software house, with their first product just on the streets, 
surely Vision haven't been prey to the pirates yet? "We sent Woody 's World out 
to the maga/ines for review as our first full price game. ..One week later it 
turns up on a local BBS (rippled io **** with some ****ing pirate group's 
name tattooed on the front-end. 

This iralU tested our faith in the Amiga market. We're developing on a 
\i -i\ lean budget and aitei sending \Vood\ oul in lo the lug wide world some- 
one goes and performs unspeakable acts on him." 

But that's not the onlv misfortune Vision have endured this year, as they 
explain: "Then DMI. our distributor, went down nearlv taking us with them. 
So it's been a prettv kid veai so far! We aim to turn it around though!" 

So what plans do they have? "Future releases will Ik* priced at £10 includ-

EX-DEMO CODERS MARK WRIGHT 

and Rob Ward have just created Inertia 
because they felt their talent for coding, 
graphics and music could be put to use 
writing quality games. However, they still 
feel that the demo scene is an ideal bridge 
between coding and games writing. 

Inertia's first game, Vulturia. is based on a 
trusted formula. "It captures the feel of some 
of the older coin-ops." says Rob. "It's a nice, 
simple platform game." 
■ ■■■ vunutc ii Vulturia is based on two characters, Victor 

be in trouble with his missus and Valerie Vulture, and their four sons. In an 
rf Sydney stays in that cage. interesting role-reversal, Victor is a househus- 

band while Valerie goes out to collect the food. 
On a more serious note. Mark has a message for the Big C: "Commodore 
should release a hardware reference manual for the A1200. You can't 
expect the machine to take off if no programmers can get hold of the neces- 
sary information." 

As well as games coding, the pair have an interest in music. Mark is a DJ, 
and both have had white label 



Sktdmsrks, of the tyre and tarmac kind, not to be confused with - well we won't go 
into that here. Why not go and play it now, it's on the Coverdisk. 



records released on the club scene. 
They consider good music to be as 
mportant to a game as good graph- 
ics, so, they have set up another 
company called Sonic Solutions 
through which they intend to write 
music for other companies' games. 
"Back in the days of the C64," 
says Mark, "people like Rob Hubbard 
and firms such as WE M.U.S.I.C were 
stars of the 64 music scene. We want 
to recreate that with the Amiga." 






These *f€ early graphics - in fact, the 



whole game's only taken three weeks.

On a visit to the world of commodore Show in Australia, .. *• »t 
Marcus Dyson found there was much more the antipodean?^ \ 
had to offer - good beer, Blitz and 'rockstar' coders.,.\ 



AS I LAY on mv hotel bed in ihe sauna thai 
is Hong Kong, with the odour of Dim Sum and 
Chinese laundry drifting through ihe open win- 
dow. I wondered. I wondered how I got involved 
with Acid, LSD, Blitz, and planning a ie\olutmn. 

It started in Sydney. I'd only gone to Australia 
to take the kid who won the Real Genius 
Competition (see how he got on in the News pages] 
and Commodore Australia were paying. Their I'R 
supremo, Howard Needleman. is a host ol the first 
order, even though mone) is his god, so it was 
bound to be a hoot. Seven hundred hours cattle 
class on Cathay Pacific was .1 small price- to pa\. 




One of th« most important arcade games of all time. 
Defender, is accurately rendered in Blitx Basic. 



FRIDAY ON MY MIND 

I'd checked into the Park Roval 
Darling Harbour HotcJ, much*' a 
looked like a post-modernist 
dream on the outside, and 
an opulent fantasy on 
the inside. Then straight 
across the harbour to the 
Woild of Commodore 
Show. Kim Hollingsworth. 
Commodore Oz employee, 
was worried that I would Ix* 
cold as I stepped out in short 
sleeves. What arc these people 
on? This wa^aswarm a day as the 
Knglish summer' ever gets. 

You have to be stupid to send 
all vour thieves and vagabonds 
to paradise. Especially 
when everyone else

remains on a liny, 
overcrowded speck 

of an island belea- 
guered by ihe 
least c lenient 'tem- 
peiate' 1 limate in 

the world. 



TOBY SIMPSON: BLITZ IS BLINDINGLY POWERFUL! 




Millenium programmer Toby 
Simpson captured at the launch 
of the Amiga CD", for which he 
wrote Diggers. 



Toby Simpson is a 
thoroughly nice 
man who likes 
fudge. In his spare 
time (that which he 
does not spend eat- 
ing fudge and 
drinking whiskey) 
he is also the head 
programmer at 
Millenium 
Interactive 
Entertainment. 
His latest project Is 



Diggers, the first 
CD 32 game. He's 

also worked on Robocod, a fact which makes 

him OK in our book. 

Here is what Toby Simpson thinks 

of Blitz Basic 2... 




BASIC was originally designed as an 
instructional language. It actually stands 
for Beginners All Purpose Symbolic 
Instruction Code. Its creators never intended it to 




be used as a professional programming language, 
and yet it achieved huge popularity, particularly in 
the early Eighties with the 8-bit home computers, 
such as the Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amstrad 
machines. As computers marched on, more power- 
ful languages were needed to properly make use of 
them. BASIC continued to survive, as software 
developers such as HiSoft continued to improve 
BASIC and keep it up-to-date. 

Blitz Basic, by Acid Software, is a compiled 
BASIC, which means that a special program, 
called a compiler turns your BASIC program into 
ultra-fast machine code before you run it. It 
comes with a truly astonishing box full of goodies. 
This includes a user's guide, a massive A4-size refer- 
ence manual, several copies of the Blitz user 
newsletter and three disks packed with PD soft- 
ware which has been written using Blitz Basic. 

Quite a few minutes playing the version 
of the game Defender, which comes on one 
of the PD disks, indicates that Blitz Basic 
was certainly an extremely powerful tool - 
and what's more, the game worked just fine 
on an Amiga 4000 with no problems. 
Blitz Basic is certainly very complete. It contains 



Learning 

to program led Toby 

to produce the great classic 

James Pond 2 - Robocod. 

Although not immediately. 

the full range of expected BASIC commands, includ- 
ing multi-line functions and procedures. It's stolen 
the idea of structures from 'C, a powerful addition 
to the language. Where it really does excel is in the 
amount of control you have over your Amiga. 
Things that you'd normally have to resort to some

♦ .. f Armstrong is 

•»% beast of a man, huge 
/• and hairy. When I liisi 
^introduced mvsell to him. 
"lie simph exclaimed: 
"C^pai! I need to talk 10 
*>u. let's ha\e .1 beer, 
this evening." Then, in 
the distracted way that 
comes with great 
genius, or monu- 
mental rudeness, he 
proceeded to ignore 
me. busying himself 
with selling thousands 
of dollars worth of Bhti 
Basic Z 

The Acid stand at 
WOC was like an open 
and completely disorgan- 
ised games arcade. Blitz 
programmer Mark Siblv 
has been ridiculous!) pro 
ductive In creating demos 
to support the language. 

On the monitors were 

Defenda. '/jimbie ;\fnuaf\f/sr. Seek 
and Destroy, Insecttnds 9? and (on 

die Coverdisk) Skidmarks, the 

demo (hat will make it to com- 
mercial game status. And 
the kids were wielding 
jovstii ks like 1 7i 9mm 
automatic v death and 
destruction leigned. 




In keeping with the Blitz tradition of reworking old 
arcade classics, Insectoids pays homage to Ga/aga. 



Apart from working feverishly to show how 
great his programming language is. Mark Siblv has 
been coding games for Vision Software. Vision are 
one of the most productive and creative new soft- 
ware houses around, with Waad\'s W'arid and 
Overkill - the world's first AGA-only game - already 
under their belt, plus Seek and I)esttn\ and 
Gladiators in production (see page 32 foi more 
details of their work). 

Sunon Armstrong is paying their wages. Why? 
"I don't know," he says. "I just saw these two guys, 
and thought Thev are just too brilliant to lx- on 
the dole. It's not wages, it's all advanced royalties, 
If \Y<hhI\'s W'arid had made it to the shelves bv now 
they'd already lx* raking it in." 

Howry 5 World rated a verv creditable 84 per 
cent in Amiga Format, then seemingly disappeared, 
what happened? "Woody '5 was going to be dis- 
tributed by DM1, we'd just shipped and they went 
bust. It was pretty upsetting, there are we, just 
about to gel our first commercial game oil the 
streets, and suddenly we didn't have a distribution 
Company any more," Armstrong explains. 

"Mungo [Amyait Lear, ex DMI director) still 
has Woody's, he faxed us from his new company. 
1 ondon Soltwait- Developments. saving the\'d gel 
Woody's out. but we're really not sure what is going 
on at the moment." 

He laughs: That'll be great, eh? Acid Software 
distributed b> LSD!" 




It's behind you... Editor Marcus Dyson and Simon 
Armstrong pause tor a second in the jungle that is 
downtown Sydney. 

LATER... 

We met in the hotel bar. hoping for a quiet drink. 
But Simon and Mark were fitting with a hundred 
Others. 'This is the Wild Bunch". I didn't believe 
him for a second, Ernest Borgnine wasn't then-! 

During the seemingly endless stream of intro- 
ductions, I forgot all iheii names. Who the hell 
were these guys* Thev had been sitting in their 
bedrooms foi two years knocking up graphics for 
non-existent computer games. Then an 

entrepreneur by the name of Mujo Sefa saw their 
slull. dec ided it was worth investing in and set 
them up. houses, cars, the works. 

Sefa is a retired' businessman who used to 
"lullill government supply contracts in New 
Guinea". He exudes a quiet confidence, borne. 
fine suspec ts. of always getting his way. He doesn't 
know a whole lot about the computer leisure 
scene, but his enthusiasm is infectious. Mark Siblv 
recalls when Sela lust saw Overkill, he proclaimed 
that it was great and that they'd sell '200,000! 

Continued overleaf *- 




pretty heavy C programming, or machine code to 
do are now available from BASIC commands, 
including setting up of interrupts and an in-line 
assembler (which should really help those 
who need that extra ounce of power out of 
their programs). 

The documentation Is beyond fault. The reference 
manual has a comprehensive index and table of 
contents allowing you to look up pretty much any- 
thing very quickly. Each function is explained with 
syntax and examples. The user guide is devoted to 
getting you set up, started and teaching you the 



basics of BASIC, and includes loads of examples for 
you to type in. On top of these two guides, a disk 
full of examples is provided, and the PD games 
disks which show very graphically the sort of things 
you can do with ft. Giving away several copies of 
Blitz User is a nice touch, and gives you even more 
things to try and loads of hints and tips. 

Blitz Basic is a worthy rival to AMOS, and if you 
are after an easy to learn language such as BASIC, 
which allows you to learn about your Amiga and 
perhaps write some games and demos, then you 
can't go far wrong with it. Its definitely worth a 
good long hard look. 



Robocod is now available In mn AGA version. Owners of 
the non-AGA version can upgrade by sending their disks 
and a cheque for C9.99 to Millennium at Quern House, 
Mill Court. Great Shelford. Cambridge CB2 5LD.

46 It's because I've spent two years getting the new 

Star LS-5 Series right that I'm sure it's right for you. 
In quality, features, value-for-money, and 
compatibility with your existing PC and software. 

Mind you, it wasn't easy. Designing a series to 
meet the needs <>t so many different people and 
systems. Squeezing them into an incredibly small 
footprint. And specifying as standard, many features 
usually only available in far more expensive models. 

Such as the RISC processor 1 installed for the first 
time on this level of printer to give you first page 
printing at a speed comparable with costlier machines. 

And what about the way I insisted on improved 
typeface technology. On each model - like the LS-5 
low cost general 
purpose printer there 
are 14 resident 
bitmapped fonts and L5 
TrueType softfonts for 
Windows 3.1 on disk. 

More than that, 
the LS-5 EX |a very fast 
stand alone or 
networked printer) has 
an extra 8 scalable PCL-5 Agfa Intcllifonts and 
upgrade paths to Truelmage (Microsoft PostScript) 
and ApplcTaik. While for the ultimate in DTP 
performance and flexibility, the LS-5 TT also has 
additional 35 Truelmage PostScript resident fonts for 
true WYSIWYG on Windows and Apple Mac. 

And just wait till you see how Star's unique 
Resolution Enhancement Procedure (REP)" produces 
a genuine 600x300 dpi. Add this to the new 
combined microfine toner/drum cartridge and the 
improvement in print definition is clear! 



Turning to paper handling I was determined to 
give you the flexibility to meet virtually all printing 
needs: from large mail shots to heavy duty envelopes. 
So apart from dual source 150 4 250 sheets) there's 
also a third source option to give an 800 sheet 
capacity in four paper sizes. 

To help increase your business efficiency I 
specified automatic dual interfaces and user modes 
which will enable PC users to share printers within the 
company. 

And then I ... well unfortunately I've run out of 
space! But if what you've read so far sounds good, send 
off the coupon for even more details on the superb 
LS-5 Series. ••

ANDY BRAYBROOK: BLITZ PRODUCES EXCELLENT RESULTS 




Andy Braybrook. the man who 
killed pop music 



Andrew Bray brook 
is a part of develop- 
ers Graft go Id. 
programmer of 
Rainbow Islands, 
bass guitarist and 
all round great guy. 
He is currently 
putting the finish- 
ing touches to the 
Amiga version of 
his C64 classic 
Undium, imagina- 
tively titled Uridium 



2. He had this to say about Blitz Basic 2... 

My last encounter with BASIC was on the Dragon 
32 in about 1984. So before I began this 
review I had to plough through the manual. 

The installation procedure seems 
straightforward, and the manual is 
written in a fairly colloquial style. 
Vision seem to have thought of all the 
things that might go wrong and offer advice 
if things don't work. 




First impressions: I'm glad to see that line num- 
bers have bitten the big one. Who needs them? 
They encourage amazingly bad programming 
habits. In fact the examples supplied have been 
written in a neatly structured style which makes 
them easy to read. The editor puts key words in a 
different colour so you can see that it has recog- 
nised them immediately. All sorts of new-ish 
constructs are available, like Do-Whiles making the 
language more readable. 

What I was most impressed by was the speed 
and polish of some of the examples supplied in the 
package. I had more than a few goes of the 
Defender clone and you'd be hard pressed to tell it 
was written in BASIC. One of the keys to its speed is 
that it always compiles the program before running 
ft that is it converts the game to machine code and 
then executes it This will slow down develop- 
ment time a bit because you have to 

re-compile when you change a line, but 
the finished results are well worth it 
The package is aimed more at 
the intermediate programmer than at a 
beginner since there is a fair amount to learn 
before you can get started, but I know how hard it 



is to get into assem- 
bler and Blitz 2 
produces excellent 
results. You can 
integrate small 
routines of 
assembler into 
the BASIC to 
speed up spe- 
cific bits, and 
some of the more 
intricate com- 
mands provide 
direct access to 
hardware regis-

ters. Thus you can 

play with the Amiga hardware directly without 
(hopefully) the hassle of re booting when you make 
a mess as often happens with assembler. 

The authors of Blit2 Basic 2 seem to be gen- 
uinely enthusiastic and keen to help 
as they produce their own newsletter, and while 
someone there really needs to keep a close eye on 
the spelling, I detect a strong commitment to keep- 
ing the product going and I wish them well.

and drank ourselves into a frenzied impasse. 






LAZY SUNDAY 

Sunday night, and the World of 

Commodore was just a (ven 

recent) memory. Simon and I 

met in the bar of the hotel lot a 

quiet dinner. It was the night ol the 

Wimbledon final and we wanted to eat. then 

Unci a bar where we could \egitate and watch the 

tennis. Over dinner Armstrong and I began to talk 

about shareware. He asked me wb\ Jell Mintei 

and Uamatron made a yen tidy (and well 

deserved] amount as shareware, and Brvau Bell 



shifted several thousand full copies ol Ouaiu 
Chimp after his AF Coverdisk* But Mark Sibly had 

relativeh lew responses horn the shareware release 
of Ofberrutix. I pointed out that both Jeff and 
Brvan olVered an extra disk with more stuff on il to 
people who registered. Simon's eves lit up. I could 
see the thoughts whizzing around his brain. He 
edged (loser to me and asked how 1 felt about 
starting a revolution. 1 looked for the exits. I was 
sitting at dinner with a madman, and that bag he 
had with him. il probably had a bomb in it. II I'd 
had a can ol Mace with me I'd have had it for his 
eyes and dived under a nearby table. As it was. I 
raised m\ eyebrows and nied to appear interested. 
Simon Armstrong then unveiled his plan to me. 
And a damn good one il was too. 

Acid Software want to start a shareware revolu- 
tion. The\ want everyone OUI there writing their 
own games and seeing some financial reward for 
it. The\ want ihe power of popular opinion to 
shape the games of tomorrow. Excellent, I 
e\. laimed. but how are they going to achieve this? 
"We'll put fflitz Itttsu «>n the cover of Amiga 
I otmat" Simon replied. 

"Great," I said, never afraid to place a brilliant 
piet e »»t software on the trout cover. "But how will 
thai start a 1 evolution?" I asked 

Simple.' replied Simon. "We'll run a compe- 
tition lot youi readers to write a great game in 
Blitz, and to the two who write the best ones we'll 
give an Amiga 4000 030 as a prize. That should 
gel 'em coding." 

\nd that's how it all began. Next month we'll 
he giving von /(///: Hum/ 2 on Amiga Format's cover. 
So get coding... the revolution starts here. O 




Buiibar. shoot things, collect things and it's got nice 
inertia, erm... sort ol Defender meets Asteroids. 



First Ssmursl. It 
was fabulous 
and it was on 
our Coverdisk 
a long, long 
L time ago... 




RAF CECCO: SUPERB FOR CREATING GAMES... 



The idea in First Ssmursl was to collect things, and to 
punch and kick things. It was a lot batter than It sounds. 



Raf Cecco is the programmer responsible for one of 
the best Amiga platform games we've ever seen, 
the excellent First Samurai. He's also the program- 
mer of the Second Samurai demo on this month's 
Coverdisk. So what does a professional games pro- 
grammer like Raf think of Blitz Basic 27 

"rt is excellent as far as BASICS go - it's superb 
for creating simple games. There is invariably some 
overhead in terms of processing speed because it's 
a compiled language, but on the A1200 games 
could potentially appear as much better quality 
because it's a much faster processor. 

"i like the way you can kick out the Amiga OS, 
and use the full power of the machine. The C-type 
structures are also very good." 

So what about the example programs which 
are included with the language? 

"I've enjoyed playing the Blitz Defender an 
awful lot - more than some of my Super Nintendo 
games lately." 

How does Blitz compare to Raf's language of 
choice, machine code? 

"When I started coding on the ZX81 I began in 
BASIC, but I think it would have been more difficult 
to begin immediately with machine code. I think 




In fact, the follow-up. Second Samurai is on this 
month's Coverdisk, to why not give it a go and see 
what you think? 

Blitz Basic really is excellent and could be used as a 
stepping stone on the way to writing 100 per cent 
machine code games. 

But will it replace machine code? "For the 
amount of effort it would take to get the best out 
of this language, you may as well put it into learn- 
ing machine code. However, it's the best thing I've 
seen other than machine code for writing games."

For 

all AF 

readers who 

missed out on last 

month's competition, 

we're giving you another 

chance to get creative! 



vet the years the Amiga has grown into an 
extremely sophisticated machine. Not just as 
a games machine, or solely for serious use. 
but the Amiga is now a capable performer in many 
areas. At creating gorgeous graphics, the Amiga is 
master, with programs like Deluxe Paint imagine and 
VistaPro And Desktop publishing is a doddle with 
PageStream and ProPage. With its ability to play sam- 
pled sounds and run a wide variety of music 
programs, the Amiga Is also a powerful music 
machine. And Editing and titling videos is another 
skill the Amiga Is adept at. 

Because of these plentiful and wondrous abilities, 
wove put together a mega huge competition with 
prizes that represent the variety of operations the 
Amiga Is used for And the different things you have 



to do to win the prizes means that everyone has a 
good chance of winning a prize they can really make 
the most oV 

Each of the prize winners will have their prizes 
presented to them at the Future Entertainment Show 
on 11-14 November (But don't worry if you win and 
you're not there, your pnze will be sent to you. But 
you would be mad to miss It.) 

This year the FES promises to be even bigger and 
better with 150 exhibitors covering around 20.000 
square feet of the Olympta Exhibition Centre. More 
than 130.000 people are expected to attend the show. 
and tickets priced at £6.95 or £24.95 for a group of 
four, must be booked prior to the show. 

A credit card hotline has been set up for the 
show, so to book your tickets call 051-356 5065.

ollowing the completion of 
Second Samurai, Vivid Image 
are about to embark on their 
most ambitious project to date. 
Hodja is to be a CD-only game, devel- 
oped for every CD platform, and Vivid 
Image want you to design it for them! 
This isn't just the Vivid Image boys 
being lazy - they've done the preliminary 
work on the game, like designing the 
characters in the story and the basic sce- 
narios, and what you have lo do is come 
up with a design for the game itself. 

The story so far... 

Hodjo is a popular Turkish folk hero, 
believed to have lived around the 1 3th 
century. His name means 'the learned 
one', or 'the wisest of men', and he 
makes his living by telling funny stories, 
making predictions and giving advice to 
people. Because what he says is com- 
pletely made up and untrue, most of his 
predictions go wrong, so he can't slay in 
one place too long. 

A typical suburban family, whose 
name you must make up, hires Hodja for 
a birthday party. What the parents don't 
realise is that Hodja practices real magic, 
but he's not very good at it. He grants the 
child a wish, which he must ask for while 
blowing out the candles on his birthday 
cake. The lights go out, the boy blows out 
the candles, and when the lights come 
back on, the family is sitting in a strange, 
monster-filled fantasy world One of 
Hodja's spells has backfired... again! 

Here's where you come in! 

Design a game continuing on from the 
above story. To help fou, Bill Hajee (who 
animated the mice in the Disney film, The 
Rescuers) has drawn a rough of what the 
family look like - see the cartoon. He will 
also be working on the in-game graphics, 
so don't worry if you can't draw! 

Make your design in full storyboard- 
type form if you can, with detailed 
pictures describing each of the areas of 
the game, and some brief text to describe 
them. However, If your drawing is not so

hot you can just sketch out the scenes, 
and write down descriptions of the levels. 

The game design must be appealing 
to the whole family. Because a family is 
portrayed in the game, a real family 
should be able to control the characters. 
Up to four players may play the game 
simultaneously, with each playing the part 
of a family member. There should be an 
option to switch to any free family mem- 
ber at any point in the game. 

A family pet could be included, either 
a cat or a dog, which would either help 
or hinder the family's efforts. Alternatively, 
o baby monster could be befriended by 
one of the children during the adventure. 
Oh, and not forgetting, of course, Hodja's 
beloved donkey, Eshek. 

Each member of the family should 
have different objects (which they were 
carrying prior to the casting of the spell), 
which they can use to get rid of the mon- 
sters they meet. Also, since the physical 
attributes of the characters vary, so must

their abilities. Characteristics could be: 
Mother: Pulls children away from poten- 
tial trouble, screams at monsters, 
administers first aid and comfort; 
Father: Carries children on his shoul- 
ders to give them a rest or help them over 
obstacles, lifts heavy objects; 
Children: Climb trees to attack monsters 
from above, climb rockfaces with help 
from the father, and swim well. 

To avoid patronising the characters, 
you will need to introduce much humour 
and role-reversal. For instance, the father 
may be terrified of snakes, while the 
mother may find them cute. Remember 
that Hodja is to be for CD-based 
machines only, so there are no limitations 
for the game's size and scope. Think of it 
as an interactive mini-movie, but steer 
clear of the Dragon's Lair style of game 
(all graphics and no gameplay).Try to 
make it easy to ploy and combine adven- 
ture with arcade sequences and puzzles. 
Above all, have fun! £>

Richard Baguley looks at three printer driver programs 
that will improve the quality of your printouts, period! 

MODERN PRINTERS ARE < ip.ihlr <»l producing excellent results, bul 
although von ni.i\ have .1 stunning image, l>\ (he time it's reached ihe page, 
the results can be disappointing. The weak link in the chain is often tin- 
primer driver. This takes the IFF image and converts ii into .1 format which 
the printer can deal with, Most priniri drivers supplied with Workbench do ;i 

pretty good job, bul to gel the best results, you need much more control over 

the Final result than the Workbench drivers provide. 

This is where the tluee programs reviewed here come in. All work by 

adding to, or replacing, the preferences drivei used in Workbench, and pro- 
cessing the image In ;i bettei way. Turbo Print Professional replaces the 
preferences program, while him Stmln> ,\n<\ I nmPrini/24 work with the prefer- 
ences drivei to improve die print quality. All allovi you imu h more conuol ovei 
dithei pattern. as|K"i t latio, eoloui (onversion and resolution. Configuring 
these correctly gives you printouts whfc h rcalrj use the powet »»i youi printer. 

To test the three programs we have used three differeni printers - a 
I lewlcit Packard 500C colour, a PanuonU K\ !M HO lasei and .1 < anon BJ230 

desktop inkjel. For printers without dri\ers designed espei tails foi those mod- 
els, the manufacturer's recommended emulation has been used. The image

GERMAN PROGRAMMERS 

IRSEESOFT have been producing 
printer enhancement programs for 
several years, including the excellent 
Turbo Print 2 on this month's 
Coverdisk. The latest thing to come 
out of this resourceful software 
house is Turbo Print Professional 2, 
an upgrade to, surprise, surprise, 
Turbo Print Professional. 

This program works by replacing 
the preferences driver with a mem- 
ory resident program which handles 
the printer output. To programs such 
as DPaint and Professional Page, this 
appears just like the normal prefer- 
ences driver, and can be treated as 
such by users and programmers 
alike. However, it's much more flexi- 
ble than the preferences driver, with 
five screens of configuration 
options. Once you've configured the 
software, the program stays In mem- 
ory and pretends to be the 



COVERDISK OFFER 

One of this month's Coverdisks 
includes the excellent Turbo Print 
version 2, and we ace offering an 
exclusive chance for Amiga 
Format readers to upgrade to

£26.95. See page 147. 



preferences printer pro- 
gram. It even survives 
intact if you reboot the 
machine (as long as you 
don't turn it off). 

Over 60 drivers are 
supplied with the pro- 
gram, but this should 
cover several hundred 
makes of printer, as most 
can pretend to be other 
models (called emula- 
tion). Fourteen types of 
dither are included with 
the program, including two versions 
of the Floyd Steinberg type, and an 
option to rotate the dither pattern. 
Also included is the option to 
expand your printouts to cover sev- 
eral sheets, so you can produce 
poster-sized prints of your iFFs. 

One of the strongest areas of 
Turbo Print Professional 2 is its 
colour correction. This is used to 
translate the colours that appear on 
to the screen into the ones that 
appear on the page. Seven presets 
are supplied for various types of 
printer, and these provide a good 
basis for experimenting to get the 
correct colours out of your printer. 
Turbo Print Professional 2 is an 
excellent all round program for 
improving your printing. It makes 
printing significantly faster, and as 
the examples on these pages prove, 
it improves the output quality 
greatly. The manual is well written. 




One ol Turbo Print's most powerful fea- 
tures is it's very powerful and ea*y to 
use colour correction.

A printout from a Panasonic KX-P4410 laser printer 
using the HP Laserjet II driver from Workbench. It's 

grey, as the drivers supplied with Workbench can 
only send 4-brts per pixel for black -and white 
images, which gives a maximum of 16 shades- 



Installing and running Turbo Print Professional 
version 2 gives much brighter images, with more 
shade s of grey and much better dithering. 



Studio contains 15 dither patterns, and this is one 
of the halftone ones. If you're going to be copying 
your printouts on a photocopier, using a dither like 
this will give much better results.

A sample print from a Hewlett Packard Deskjet 500. 
using the HP deskjet driver included with 
Workbench 3. This driver is only capable of han- 
dling 12-bits per pixel (giving 4,096 shades), and 
the dithering routines are not particularly effective. 



Contrast the last printout with this excellent one 
printed with Studio Good dithering, a wide con-

a pro- 



grammer who has earned ilic 
uikImiik gratitude ol main an Amiga 
user by writing a series ul printer 
drivers (or printers n»i supported bv 
Workbench. Eventually, lie decided 
to pull all these new drivers 
together, and add a new program 
which will improve die cjualin of 
output on other printers. The result 
was Studio. 

Studio \s based around three new 
printer drivers for use with dot 
matrix. Hewlett Packard DeskJets 
(including the HP5"»0( . i, and laser 
printers (including the new Laserjet 
4). Through the emulations offered 
l>\ most printers, the author claims 
thai Studio will support foi over turn 
hundred printers. 

When voti install the program, 
the required driver is added to the 
list of drivers installed on vour 
Uoikbench disk, and a separate pro- 
gram is included to fine tunc the 
output. This includes |"i dithering 
patterns, several of which are unique 
to the program (such as blue noise 
and Jams, Judice and Ninke dither). 
From here, you can also control the 
page size, the colour adjustments 
and whether the printer is con- 
nected to an Mon parallel poll

between three different devices 
through software control.

Hi. 

Two guesses as to what I'm going to review this 
month. You'll probably get it in one.... The new 
Amiga CD32 

July 16th at the Science Museum in London, 
Commodore Launched 'CD32 to a very excited 
audience; and what a launch it was! We all 
expected to sec a very special Amiga but no one 
(except Commodore) could imagine just how- 
special! 

In fact, only in June of this year did Sega them- 
selves quote "we could bring a 32 - bit console 
out tomorrow.. .but the problem is the price and I 
don't think that problem will be solved this year 
or next year" Well Commodore have definately 
knocked that theory on the head with a retail 
price of £299.99. 

I won't go on about all the other breakthroughs 
this console has made as I know the magazines 
are full of reviews giving all that teckie stuff etc. 
but I really must say something about the stag- 
gering amount of software that's due for release. 
Somewhere between 50 and 100 titles will be 
available by Christmas and more importantly all 
the great software houses are now developing 
products, including Psygnosis. Ocean, Gremlin 
and many many more. 

As if all this wasn't enough there's still more to 
come from this incredible box of tricks... Full 
Motion Video. Bv the inclusion of a neat little 
gadget called an Mpeg Module you'll soon be 
able to watch films on CD and that really does 
mean some really special products are just 
around the corner. I can't wait to see and hear all 
my favourite bands on CD and the Amiga CD is 
just waiting to play them. 
Anyway I'm sure you're just as convinced as I 
am that this product from Commodore really is 
just a bit special and certainly changes the future 
for things to come the likes we have never seen 
before. Why don't you drop me a line and tell me 
what you think, in fact how about some sugges- 
tions as to what vou'd like to do with the new 
Amiga and I'll get Indi to give one away for the 
best letter. 
See you next month.

DMA ENSURES HIGHEST 
PRACTICE 

As with most industries, the UK's 
personal computer industry has its share 
of cowboys operating in the mail order 
sector and at the receiving end a line up 
of despairing consumers who have suffered 
at their hands. 

A personal computer is a sophisticated 
and expensive item and provided the pur- 
chaser is dealing with a reputable and 
accredited supplier, buying a computer 
by mail order can be a perfectly safe and 
cost effective exercise. The Direct 
Marketing Association (DMA) was set 
up in April 92 to set and maintain high 
standards for the sake of the industry and 
society at large, and to ensure that we can 
continue to regulate our own activities on 
the basis of 

proper professional responsibility. 
Membership of the DMA is not 
conferred lightly - it is a privilege which 
entails responsibilities, to the consumer 
as well as to the industry. The foundation 
for this must be good practice. DMA 
members arc required to abide by the 
highest standards as laid down in the 
DMA's code, enforced on members by 
The Authority of the DMA a separate 
body with an independent Chairman, and 
which is an assurance of vigorous self - 
regulation and professional responsibility. 
DMA members also agree, as a condition 
of membership, to abide by The British 
Code of Advertising Practice and The 
British Code of Sales Promotion 
Practice: to apply the Mailing Preference 
Service file when appropriate: and to 
subscribe to the Advertising Standards 
Board of Finance (ASBOF) and to the 
Mailing Standards Levy as applicable. 
The DMA symbol can only be used by 
members. Printed on stationary, advertising 
and other promotional material it demon- 
strates that these companies conform to 
the Association's high standards and are 
subject to the DMA's Code of Practice, 
thus enhancing the companies credibility 
with customers, suppliers and of greatest 
importance, the 
consumer. 

Since the symbol was introduced last 
June, it has become synonymous with 
quality . professionalism and and respon- 
sibility. While it cannot be shown in any 
way which will become a sign of best 
industry practice and of strict adherence 
to DMA codes of conduct. The symbol 
represents authority for members and 
reassurance for consumers. It has been a 
high valued mark of confidence signifying 
to the consumer the truly professional 
edge of the indastry.

Panasonic 



Quiet SiSKni 




We researched the colour printer market at great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga s powerful output, yet at an affordable price. 
We found the perfect printer in the KX - P2I80 and KX • P2I23 quiet printers. 
We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it. We found that too, with 'Wordworth' yet at a 
retail price of £ 1 29,99 we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchase! So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of *Wordworth' free with every 
Panasonic printer How's that for added value?

ducing documents faster and easier, with the enhanced printing fonts (including full 
Panasonic KX - P2 1 80 and KX - P2 1 23 colour printing support). Collins spell checker 
and thesaurus, no other word processor comes close. "Without doubt this is one of the

The Ed 
won't go near a chip 
unless if s fried in beef 
dripping or has 32 bits. 
When asked to take 
five minutes from his 
schedule to comment 
he told us "Leave me

doesn't mind so long as 
we let her at our CD 32 . 
"I'm looking forward 
to seeing the latest 
James Pond," says Clur. 
"But I'm still playing 
the other ones..." 



ANDY NUTTALL

to a far 
wider 
public 
from his 
work in 
the 'Arthur' cat-food 
ads, Nutts is a shy and 
retiring type with an 
enormous appetite for 
Roast Rabbit flavour. 
"I think the best thing 
for CD 32 is going to be 
Putty 2 - it looks fabu- 
lous," he reminisces...

Pinball Fantasies will 
be very important'* 



RICHARD BAGULEY

says the 
young, 
suave, 
region- 
ally disadvantaged 
techie expert when 
asked about the CD 32 . 
"What I've seen of it

really depends on the

standard takes off,"

trate the south west of 
England with true-bom 
northeners. The Lad 
Bradley is noted for his 
Billy Bremner imita- 
tion. "Pinball Illusions 
with the multi-ball fea- 
ture should be pretty 
fabulous on the CD 32 ."

F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0 is the 
'crikey what a mouthful' title of 
MicroProse's new baby. Based 
around the proven F-19 Stealth 
Fighter engine code, F-l 17A 
improves on the technology of the 
aircraft, and also the game engine 
to include a HUD for night missions, 
and sprite-based explosions and 
smoke. Nine countries are to be 
featured, including Cuba, North 
Korea and Iraq, and further disks 
will become available to load in fur- 
ther terrains. 

F-/ 17A Stealth Fighter 2.0 will 
be released in September for 
£34.99. MicroProse 0666 504 326

Avoid matches a* much as possible, because 
they can be dangerous. Especially In Micro 
Machines, where they may cause you to hit your 
opponent over the head with your Joystick. 

The smash Mega Drive hit Micro 
Machines is almost ready on the 
Amiga. Targeted for release in 
October, it's a top-down racing 
game where two players take control 
of their Micro Machines (a sort of 
Dinky toy, apparently) and race 
around typical household courses. 
27 different tracks are covered, 
including snooker tables, sandpits 
and school desks. 

We've seen a sneak preview of 
the Amiga gome, and can report 
that it's every bit as good as the orig- 
inal console game. Codemasters 
0926 814132. 



RENEGADE TO 
PUBLISH U2! 

From the mighty keyboard of Andy 
Braybrook comes the long-awaited 
Uridium 2, a sequel to his 
Commodore 64 classic, which is to 
be released through Renegade. The 
original Uridium didn't make the 
transition on to the Amiga, to the 
chagrin of Amiga owners who 
upgraded from the 64, so the new 
gome should be an instant hil. 

From the Beta test version of U2, 
as it is codenamed (not to be con- 
fused with the popular Irish-American 
spy plane), we con report that the 
gameplay has been kept true to the 
original. There ore plenty of addi- 
tions, though, including a variety of 
weaponry, a landscape which scrolls 
vertically as well as horizontally, and 
an improved bonus mode. An exclu- 
sive Coverdisk demo will shortly be 
winging its way to your newsagents, 




Uridium 2 Is fantastic! You can take our words 
(or It even before the review. Smashing. 

stuck to the front of this very Amigo 
magazine (except in two month's 
time). Full review soon. 

Renegade have two other 
releases planned for the near future. 
The first, Flight of the Amazon 
Queen, is a graphic adventure from 
Australia. Binary Illusions are the 
company tipped for the top by 
Renegade, and their game will be 
released in early '94. Also, Ruff 'n' 
Tumble is a cutesy platformer written 
by ex-Apocalypse main man Jason 
Perkins. Renegade 071-481 0214. 



ENHANCED EXILE 

Audiogenic are enhancing their ageing shoot-em-up Exile (AF23, 68 per 
cent) for the Amiga Al 200, and potentially for the new CD^ console. 
Audiogenic's Peter Calver told us: "The major thing that let the game down 
was the graphics, so it's a natural upgrade." Also under development for the 
A500, Al 200 and CD 32 is a platform game Bubble and Squeak. No 
details are available at present, but look out next month for more. 



SIMON THE SORCERER 

Adventuresott/Horrorsoft creators Mike and Simon Woodroffe are moving Into the fantasy 

graphical adventure genre with a view to knocking Monkey Island 2 off its pedestal. Simon 

the Sorcerer Is their game, and after playing an early version of the game Ad ventu resort's 

claim may not be too far fetched. 

With an Interface similar to Monkey 2, 

the most noticeable thing about Simon Is 

its British sense of humour. After all, superb 

though Monkey 2 Is, the Americanisms can 

get tedious. As Simon Woodroffe says: 

"We've Incorporated a lot of fairy tales and 

stuff that will appeal to the British, and also 

the European audience." Simon Is due to be 

released some time in September, so we 

should be able to bring you a full review In 

the next Issue of Amiga Format.

capitalistic war machine with knobs

In Hired Guns (the demo was on 
AF44's Coverdisk) you get to send a 
team of four mercenaries on to a 
planet to liberate and destroy in 
equal measure. The most innovative 
feature of the game is that up to four

people can play at once; each per- 
son controlling their own mercenary. 
What's more you don't all have to 
stick together, each player can wan- 
der off to perform sorties elsewhere. 

The game features an awesome 
array of death-dealing hardware with 
which to 'liberate' the planet. These 
include lasers, chain guns, acid guns 
and automatic sentry posts. Even with 
all that fire-power, it's still easy to get 
a right royal kicking from the mutant 
inhabitants of the planet. 

Fortunately, there are plenty of 
subtleties to the gameplay. For 
instance, each mercenary has a dif- 
ferent set of abilities, be it picking 
locks, piloting craft or simply fight- 
ing. There are also some basic 
differences between each team mem- 
ber so, for instance, the droids can 
survive for ages underwater while 
the humanoid mercenaries tend to 
run out of air after 30 seconds. 

Sonically and visually the game's 
a feast. Traditionally this kind of RPG 
game suffers from repetitive visuals 
which are naff-all use when you're 
lost underground. But with Hired 
Guns the surroundings change enor- 
mously with each different sortie and 
there's plenty of wall detail to enable 
you to zip around the bases as effi- 
ciently as possible. 

The game has an extensive train- 
ing feature, enabling you to battle 
some of the many mutant inhabitants

of the planet, a long strategy game 
and a quick action game. The long 
strategy game features over 30 mis- 
sions, each with different difficulty 
settings, the early ones (which are 
still quite tough) are listed as a 1 , 
while later levels go all the way to 
30. In other words, it gets pretty 
damn tough. 



Now while it's possible to play 
Hired Gum on your own, games like 
this really come alive when there's 
more than one player (wait until you 
see the multi-player Syndicate): par- 
ticularly when you wipe out your 
mates with an Uzi. Hired Guns is out 
in September, so get some gullible 
friends ready now. O

Verily, Sir Knight, 'tis on the Eve of Lammastide that thou wilst ride 
out in search of derring-do and a half-way decent strategy game... 



If you think the current bicker 
ing over European union is 
bad, you ain't seen nothing 
yet. At least nobody has 
invaded anybody else in the name 
of a united Europe, and nobody has 
applied to the pope to become king 
(or queen) of all he (or she) surveys. I 
could be wrong, but I don't think that 
there has been much in the way of 



castle-buildmg going on since the 
signing of the Maastricht treaty. 

AH of this, and more, could be 
yours with Castles II - Siege and 
Conquest. The time is the 14th cen- 
tury, and you play one of five 
rivals for the throne of France from 
the territories of Albion, Burgundy, 
Anjou, Arogorn or Valois. Becoming 
king (or queen) is simple in theory,

Military and 




all you need to do is overrun suffi- 
cient territory and gain enough 
points to convince the Pope that 
you're the right man (or woman) for 
the job. 

However, the practicalities of 
this are a little different With 
four rivals hell-bent on 
achieving the same thing, 
life can get complicated. 
As soon as one starts to 
get big and powerful 
enough to claim the 
throne, the other four 
gang up and overthrow 
him And so oi 

The other four players 
are controlled by the com- 
puter, and you all start off with 
only one territory ond limited 
resources. Fortunately, you're sur- 
rounded by several neutral territories 
just begging to be invaded and their 
various resources piled into your 
quest for glory. However, make sure 
thai you check their status first, since 
the pope isn't likely to look kindly on 
your claim to the throne if you 
invade territory that you think is neu- 
tral, but actually turns out to be his. 







So, the first thing to do is start recruit- 
ing an army and send spies out to 
check the neighbouring states. 

You control your actions by 
assigning points to tasks in three cat- 
egories: administrative, military and 
political. To begin with you only 
have a few points, but as you con- 
quer other territories, your points in 
these categories increase. 

Unfortunately, you are limited to 
a maximum of two tasks in each cat- 
egory, which rather slows down the 
pace of the game So you can be 
attacking up to two territories, min- 
ing or collecting two commodities 
and scouting two territories. 

Get a move on 

Once you ve built up a few points in 
each of the three categories, you can 
speed up any particular task by 
assigning more points to it, but 
you're still limited to two tasks per 
category and all too often you are 
left waiting for a task to be com- 
pleted, even after you have assigned 
plenty of points to it. 

Given the general slow pace of 
the game, this really doesn't help. 
Once you've built up a bit of an 
empire things do get faster, but it's 
still a very slow gome. 

Graphically, the game betrays 
its PC origins, with both AGA and 
ECS versions contained on its nine 
disks. There is an intro sequence 
which gives you the back- 
ground on why you are 
aiming to be king 
(the old king has 
popped his clogs 
without naming 
an heir, so it's 
down to the 
pope to decide 
who is more 
worthy). The 
AGA version is, 
as you'd expect, 
much nicer in the 
graphics department, with 
256<olour screens ported straight 
from the PC version. 

There are also several digitised 
animated sequences in the game 
which ploy back when various 
events such as battles, successful 
spies or whatever happen, but these 
don't odd much, since they are only 
16 colour black and white. Frankly, 
after you've seen them once, you 
skip past them quickly 




The in-game music is more irritating 
than atmospheric, but it works well 
during the intro sequence, which 
informs you as to how you got into 
this situation in the first place. 

There is a good game in there 
somewhere, but it's rather lost under 
a badly designed control system 
which slows the game down. It will 
appeal to hardened strategy freaks, 
since there is plenty of potential for 
wheeling and dealing, buying and 
selling and annoying the pope. 
However, problems with controlling 
the game make it difficult, and the 
pace of a game is extremely slow.

New York Is the final level In this Incredibly touRh platformer. 
There are all kinds of hazards Including rollerskaters, men with 
pneumatic drills and some bad assed American footballers. 



Japan and a ride on the Bullet Express to Tokyo. Another of Soccer Kkf% 
Innovative levels sees him do battle with the Coal Mole* Just as you think 
you can reach the card, the little blighter throws coal at you. 



Would you honestly want to be running around the streets 
of RotherfieJd In the rain facing psycho construction work* 
ers? Again, the KM shows his devotion to his quest. 






It was every boy's dream to play for Rotherf ield Tuesday. They played football as it should be 

played. Unlike deadly rivals Shefferham United who, cynically guided by manager Harry 

Liquorice, intimidated their opponents. Young Trevor Jenkins dreamed of playing for Tuesday.

he boy shouted fo his Mum: 
"Don't call me Trevor. I'm 
Soccer Kid, and don't you 
forget it". 
"But Trevor love, you can't go 
through life with the name 
Soccer Kid. Folk'll 
laugh at you," said 
his Mum gently. 
She'd been through 
all this a thousand 
times before. 
"I'm gonna play for 
Rotherfield Tuesday and be 
rich and famous, and then 
win t'World Cup," continued 
Trevor stubbornly. 
"But son, your Dad's signed 
you on with Shefferham 
United, the West Riding 
giants. Don't you remember, that 
nice Harry Liquorice came round last 
week, said he'd seen you play for 
the school team, brought you a nice 
box of sweets. Now run along, 
there's a good lad. Go and watch 
the World Cup on the telly - those 
nice Argentinians are playing Chile."

e> * S 




Trevor could never make her 
understand. He was born to be 
Soccer Kid, not plain Trevor Jenkins. 
And now his Dad had gone and 
signed him for United. Things 
couldn't possibly get worse. 
Slumped on the settee, Trevor 
watched the fouling Johnny 
Foreigner's arguing with the referee 
and kicking their way around the 
park. Just like United, thought 
Trevor miserably. 

We was robbed 

Suddenfy, the camera 
zoomed in on the 
gleaming World Cup 
itself. Out of the cor- 
ner of his eye, Trevor 
noticed a trophy- 
hoarding alien hovering 
above the Earth intent on snatching 
the greatest prize of all. A laser 
beam shot out of the sky and lifted 
the trophy heavenwards. Trevor 
watched in disbelief as the airborn 
trophy collided with a passing aster- 
oid scattering the great cup across 
the globe. Undeniably, it was 
•^ an unlikely scenario but the 

youngster couldn't dispute 
what he'd seen before 
his very eyes. 

Trevor only half 
heard the commentator 
_^ talking

about the 'remarkable turn of events

could kill two birds with one 
stone - save the World Cup, 
and impress Francis Trickie, 



I 





the Rotherfield Tuesday manager. In 
the wink of an eye. Trevor changed 
into his best football kit and became 
Soccer Kid - World Cup saviour 

"Don't be late for your tea 
love." shouted Trevor's Mum as he 
dashed out of the front door with 
his football tucked under his arm. 
"I'm not Trevor Jenkins, I'm 
Soccer Kid" he exclaimed with

Rotherfield. in search of the clues 
that would eventually lead him to 
the other side of the world. 
As he pounded along the pave- 
ment, such was his control over 
the ball, it seemed almost as if it 
were tied to his foot by a piece 
of string. A shimmy, a feint and a 
glorious strike saw him safely 
past a skateboarder and a dan- 
gerous cyclist. Easy he thought,

can say Borussia

know at this stage just how perilous 
an adventure it would become. 
"Rotherfield today, and the 
world tomorrow," shouted the boy- 
wonder with fervour that bordered 

dangerously *-

Soccer Kid rinds out for himself, the problem* facing London* public transport system. For a atari, 
thore are no trains, and rata seem to be a real nuisance. Still. It's not as If there Is any overcrowd- 
ing. I bet the chocolate machine doesn't work - and who's that on the Wanted poster on the wall? 



on religious fanaticism. Now it's not 
for us to scoff at a fellow who 
believes he is Soccer Kid but the 
youngster does have some great 
skills to back up his claim to be the 
'Chosen One'. Backheels, overhead 
kicks, you name it, the lad can do it 
and he'll need to use his full range to 
defeat the opposition. 

'Remember to check the informa- 
tion points young Trevor, sorry I 
mean Soccer Kid'. It was almost as if 
an invisible voice was guiding him. 
'The secret to finding the parts of the 
trophy is to collect the football cards 
along the way'. There it was again. 
Trevor stood still for a moment and 
listened for the voice. 'Look out for 
that bulldog and that big geezer 
with the spanner you idiot'. 

That London 

Rotherfield was soon a distant mem- 
ory as he headed through the 
countryside towards London. After 
some minor skirmishes with farmers 
and a few animals, and one particu- 
lary nasty incident with a plough, 
Soccer Kid arrived in London. 

Trevor was so engrossed he'd 
forgotten about impressing the 
Tuesday boss Francis Trickie. But Mr 



Trickie would've been impressed with 
the way Soccer Kid took out an inter- 
fering tourist with a delightful ball 
through the channels before collect- 
ing a card on a double decker bus - 
a football card, not a yellow card. 

Italy next and time to show those 
Ancient Romans a thing or two about 
the sweeper system, before knocking 
a couple of Jimmy Hill look-a-likes off 



their scooters at the seaside. After 
evading some impressive man-marking 
in Russia, a speeding Tokyo train, 
and a terrible tackle by a mod professor 
in a Japanese hardware stockroom, 
it was time for America - the last leg. 

Eng-ger-land, Eng-ger-iand 

With confidence high. Soccer Kid 
rode a challenge through the Wild 
West, danced along a California 
beach before returning the World 
Cup to New York just in lime for the 
Final where England beat Brazil 24-0. 

The phone rang at 8am. "Trevor 
love, Francis Trickie's on the phone, 
says he wants you to play for the 
Tuesday on Saturday," called Soccer 
Kid's Mum. Trevor awoke from a deep, 
deep sleep. A boy's dream or one of 
the best Amiga games of the year? 

Postscript: We apologise for our 
reviewer's glib attitude to the way 
Trevor skipped across the continents. 
Please remember, Trevor, sorry, 
Soccer Kid, is a superhero. You are 
not. It will take you a year and a bit 
to finish this handsome platformer. It 
is very difficult and even the early 
levels are stout challenges.

ne hundred years from 
now industry has 
become totally auto- 
mated resulting in mass 
unemployment (or should that be 
'pandemic' seeing as we already 
have 'mass'). Anyway, in 2093 we 
find everyone's using their incresed 
leisure time to sit in front of the telly 
and watch a programme called 
Mean Arenas. 

Buzz: "Welcome sports fans 'o the 
latest action-packed edition of Mean 
Arenas, I'm Buzz McCloud and 
alongside me is Bob Bilinski. Well 
Bob, have we got a show for the 
folks sitting back at home." 
Bob: "Yes Buzz, we hove got a 
show. It's called Mean Arenas, 
you've just told everyone ." 
Buzz: OK, don't get smart with me 
son or I'll haul your ass back to 
Come Dancing faster than you can 
say Cracker jack." 

Bob: "Sure thing Buzz. Buzz's right 
folks, we have got a show for you. 
It's kind of a cross between Pacman 
and Smash TV with a bit of 
Dynablaster thrown in for good mea- 
sure. You, the ordinary members of 
the public come on down and play 
for big prizes. But remember, it's 
risky out there and if you don't make 
it, you're gonna, heh, heh, die." 
Buzz: "Folks, Bob's hit the nail right 
on the head. Death is the conse- 

C>»._ quence of losing, 
I but it's not that 
f^*\ bad a sce- 
nario. 




Suckered, Capped like a rat In a box with 
nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. And you 
i't swim for it In all that heavy armour, no sir. 






Heck, at least we don't send you 
home with a goddamn Blankety 
Blank cheque book and pen." 
Bob: "So come on Buzz, tell the 
folks what the game is all about." 
Buzz: "Listen son, I'm the anchor, 
don't tell me what to do. Folks, the 
object of the game is to make your 
way around the arena collecting 
coins as well as a whole host of 
other bonuses and extra armoury. 
Jeez, did I say arena? Actually, there 
are 22 arenas, four speed arenas 
and many, many secret arenas to get 
through Say Bob, has anyone ever 
done them all?" 

Bob: "To tell the truth Buzz, no they 
ain't and it's saved the network one 
heck of an amount in prize money. 
Mind you, it costs us a fortune in 
funerals. Still, as long as it doesn't 
come out of my salary heh, heh. 
Folks, there are four types of arenas - 
Robozone, Dungeonzone, 
Starshipzone and Roinbowzone. 
Some of them are straightfor- 
ward and some hove up to 
eight floors." 

Buzz: "You're not wrong Bob 
and standing in the path to 
comi ' 




Check on your status panel at the bottom of the arena to find out how many weapons you've got 
left, your available energy and your credit Indicator - or alternately, plough on regardless killing 
everything In sight. But don't go over the blue and gold squaros. they shoot things at you.

be dead within 3-2-1 seconds of 
meeting them, 

Bob: "Buzz, you're not only the 
anchor, you are also one heck of o 
funny guy. The guardians come in 
various guises. Some walk, some fly 
and some of them even go around 
dropping coins - the contestants 
should kill them very quickly ' 
Buzz: "You're not wrong Bob - for 
a change. Only kidding partner, 
you're the greatest. So come on 
down, Cecil Watkinson from Selby." 
KABOOM! 

Poor Cecil. Still, it's not a bad show. 
There is a lot to go at and though it's 
not sophisticated fayre. Mean 
Arenas is fun. I will be watching 
same time next week.

PLAY ABILITY 



Yes, you can certainly play it 





- It's jolly fun, 

but at just under 
£26, a bit too 
pricey. I would 
also have liked 
to see an option 
where two play- 
ers can play at 
the same time.

have a preference for the Fire Shield - It feels 
kind of nice at you pulverlM tho oppottlon. 





Wo-hoy, whhoooor, 
loads of nudey pic- 
cys, and all I have 
to do, thanks to 
Emotional Pictures, is win a 
game of Othello. They are the same 
people who were responsible for the 
similarly crass Cover Girl Strip Poker 
(AF36 - 19 per cent). What will they 
think of next? Nudey Monopoly^ Get 
Yer Baps Out Cribbage? 

The object of the game is the 
same as Othello: you have to get 
more of your coloured pieces on the 
board when it's full than those of 
your opponent's. What's different 
about this game is each of your 
pieces is actually a section of a pic- 
ture of a scantily clad young bimbo. 




I assumed that this being an all tits 
and bums game it would have no 
brain power to it at all. But Back 
Sides can play a mean game of 
Othello, and to keep the challenge 
going, as you get better so does the 
computer. Not that it needs to, get- 
ting past the second level is tough 
enough. The pictures (your reward) 
are badly digitised, so even if they 
do take their knickers off there's not 
much to see to get excited about. 
Anyway, a little something is always 
better left to the imagination. 

For titilotion Back Sides is a 
waste of cash, and I'm not just being 
a girly prude, you're better off with a 
copy of Playboy. As for being a 
decent Othello game, I've seen better 
ones in the Public Domain, no porn, 
but value for money. If you're very 
good, one day I might show you 
mine - my Othello board that isl

One for every day. Or you could have a day off 
on Sunday and lake two on a Saturday. 

The standard version comes on four disks, 
but there Is an AGA version that needs Ave 
disks to run the some program. OK so the 
pictures are a little clearer, but they don't 
really make the most of the 1200's graphi- 
cal capabilities. And with five disks you 
would expect a bit of animation.

NICKY 2 




.*> 



With stars In his eyes. Nicky flics high and then 
attempts to land between the Siamese slufi 
twins, and so separate them at last... 



his one's got a bit of a 
strange story. After rescuing 
his grandfather in Nicky 
Boom, the sequel finds 
Nicky, with his magic goose, trying 
to rid the forest of the evil witch who 
has also taken all of Nicky's toys 
and scattered them everywhere. I 
suppose that's one excuse for mess- 
ing up your room. Er, "Mummy, the 
wicked witch chucked these toys on 
the floor, not me". 

Anyway, back to Nicky and his 
magic goose. The goose can't be 
that magic because it can only carry 
Nicky around. If it was really magi- 
cal then it would do things for him or 
magically open doors or something. 
It doesn't even come to Nicky - he 
has to go and fetch it Most of the 
places the goose can go, Nicky 
could get to under his own steam. 

Getting on the goose is a doddle 
- one press of the fireburton and 
you're all ready for flight. Bui get- 
ting off the thing is a different 
matter entirely. When you're 
being attacked 
by a killer 
bee, for 
example, and 
you're trying madly to 
get off the goose so that 
you can blow up the bee 
with a fire cracker, it's 
impossible to get off the 
thing before you die. But of course 
when you don'l want to get off the 
goose when you're firing at some- 
thing, you can rely on Sod's law that 
you wilt end up falling off. 

The two main weapons at your 
disposal ore fire crackers and ultra- 
sound whistles, as well as the 
bog-standard stones. The fire crack- 




There's nothing Nicky likes more than stamping on small frogs, but he'd better watch out for Mummy. 








**.'-. 



**<•« 






Nicky edged hi* way along the moss-covered 
ledge, playing chicken with two rabid rabbits. 

ers look like sticks of dynomite and 
have a similar effect. The whistles 
destroy all the monsters on the 
screen and help dislodge bonuses 
when they're out of reach ond 
both can be found lying 
around, usually near where 
they are needed. 

There's ihe standard 
selection of monsters for 
a forest setting: 

killer bees; realis- 
tic spiders and 
rabid bears you'd rather not 
meet on a picnic in the woods. You 
can kill these by jumping on their 
heads, and they subsequently turn 
into toys that you can pick up. The 
toys are also dotted around the 
game and hidden behind magic 
walls. Keys litter the landscape and 
are used to unlock treasure chests 
and doors to other parts of the levels. 



Double maths didn't seem so bad compared 
with bowling monkoys and man-eating plants. 

There ore hidden ladders, col- 
lapsing bridges and falling masonry 
to inject an element of danger into 
the proceedings As well as the toys 
and weapons there are 'useful' 
things like logs (which look like swiss 
rolls) to build bridges and magic mir- 
rors to transport you into rooms filled 
with treasure. 

The original Nicky game was 
cute and playable, and so is this 
one, but nothing has been improved 
upon. When there are games like 
Arabian Nights and James Pond 
around, games like this are not 
worth the time and money. Sequels 
should improve on ihe original, not 
merely be an extension of the first 
game. If you haven't got Nicky 
Boom then this sequel is probably 
worth getting, but if you have then 
don't bother.

Level 30 looks like the mother and father of all levels, but a few choice jumps toon sees It completed. The secret la to make use of the ray shutter 
platforms and let them do all the hard work. Cheesy peasy! 



If it's a taxing and fiendish puzzle you're after, then you may be disap- 
pointed, but if you like cheesy, corn flavoured snacks you're in luck... 



ey Youl Don't 

watch that, watch 

•his... Erm, no! 

There are no 
pyjamo wearing keyboard 
players here, just an average 
puzzle game and a heap of prod- 
uct placement. This is the follow up 
to the spiffing Push-Over, and like 
that game it's a no holds bar, advert 



T»ko too Wg a fall, which li more than two til* 
depth, and Cofln cops Ml 



for Quovers. Once again there 
is some stupid precept for the 
game involving Colin Curly, 
you know, the bulldog in the 
yellow suit. But this lime, he is 
the 'hero', and ant-y hero G\ is 
nowhere to be seen. 
Colin has entered cyberspace. In 
true Tron fashion he has been minia- 
turised, then digitised and is stuck in 
his own (distinctly generic) computer. 
We won't go in to the details of how 
Colin gets in there, but suffice to say 
if you buy the game you will find the 
whole first disk of the two disk set is 
a (nicely animated) intro sequence 
thot you can't skip, no matter how 
many mouse and fire burtons you 
press. The problem is thai the first 
disk, the one that could have been 
full of more and belter levels, is just 
a commercial. And guess what? 



Although it's a two disk game, does 
it make use of two disk drives? Don't 
be stoopid. My other gripe about the 
intro is it keeps pausing while the 
disk is accessed. The thing is, if PD 
coders can run a non-stop animation, 
why can't Ocean's finest manage 
more than five seconds at a time? 

So once you've endured the 
advert, you're bound to get a first 
class game. I mean, after they got all 
thai corporate cash, they must be 
able to devote twice the time to cod- 
ing and gome design? Well don't 
hold your breath, but at least Ocean 
have passed some of the benefits of 
sponsorship on to the end user in the 
form of a reduced price. 

Tricky traverses 

Somewhere, beneath the layers of 
corporate bull, there is a game in 
here, lis a puzzle game. Colin, 
trapped in these silicon valleys 
between microchip mountains, has lo 
traverse a series of tricky screens to 
get from one Quaver zone to the 
next. Each time he reaches a Quaver 
zone he gets lo dive into a huge (oh! 
hold on a minute, Col's been minia- 
turised, so the packet's only normal 
sized!) pack of cheesy snocks. 

Colin gets through each screen 
by jumping from one Quavers 
packet to another via a series of red 
platforms. Hey, this is a platform 
game! But every lime he leaps off a 
platform the thing disappears. So it's 
basically a get from here to there 
without retracing your steps sort of o 
thing. But there are complications. 
Colin can jump up to two platforms, 
so he can retrace his steps if he is 
careful and uses alternate platforms. 




The basic platform These stay open 

shut* after ono jump. ■_ 



These platforms must Timed platform* 



be closed in order. close after a delay. 



[lMMIMIO 



*s* 






[t Jji 





The first disk of One Step Beyond It a huge 
great advert for Quavers, masquerading at an 



Intro animation. There's no way to get past It, 
no matter how many fire and Joystick buttons 



you press. So Just grin and bear It) The anima- 
tion Is really quite nice, but the programming Is 



godawful, after every few seconds the anima- 
tion stops while more graphics are loaded. TMa 










This level Is a difficult one. getting the timing Is 
Important, and the time tlmlt It tight. 

And he can only jump diagonally up 
and down, and straight down. Wait 
a minute, there has to be a better 
way to say that Ah, yes! Colin can 
jump in any direction except for 
straight up, because if there's a plat- 
form for him to land on, then it's in 
the way of him jumping vertically. 

There are, of course, even more 
complications. Some platforms don't 
behave like all the rest (see What the 
platforms do box). So in the end 
you're left with a game which is simi- 
lar to Skweek, or BombuzaL 

Not hard and not clever 

Gomes like this are always entertain- 
ing for the first few levels Whether 
they survive beyond this initial inter- 
est depends on the difficulty curve 
and the ingenuity of the puzzles. 
Sadly One Step Beyonds curve is 
too shallow, ot first playing I motored 
through to level 25 without a 
mishap. And even when the levels 
get more difficult, they are just more 
difficult. Not fiendish, tricky, or 
clever... just hard. So finishing them 
simply isn't rewarding enough. 

The backgrounds, animation, 
and control method are gorgeous. 
But these are a distinct second to 
gameplay. And while One Step 
Beyond is no dog, there's just no 
feeling of accomplishment ot the end 
of a level. 

The weakest verdict for o game 
review is the 'If you like this type of 
game, you'll like this' kind. But what 
can I say? If you like shoot-em-ups 
then you'll love One Step BeyoncR If 
you hate puzzle games, then this is 
the game for you? I can't say those 
things, for a start they aren't true and 
the fact is that if you do like puzzle 
games, you'll probably like this. But 
the chances are that you'll find the 
problems much too one dimensional 
and simple. If you don't like puzzle 
games, it's a real brain teaser to 
think of one reason why you have 
even read this farl

Options, options, options... so many of thorn and so little time This golf stuff Isn't all bad dress sense and putting 12 woods from the tops of trees you know. There are decisions to be made loo. 





OOLF CHAMPIONSHIP 



If your swing needs working on, or if your 
putting's not quite perfect, get some realistic 
game practice in with Ocean's new sport sim. 





tubbed to death in o 
Pringle sweater on the fifth 
in the Nevada desert. A 
man was today arrested 
for using a one iron on the green. 
He did it, he said: "Because the pool 
of blood caused by my hacking off 
the head of my skins opponent with 
a pitching wedge made the lie 
unplayable with a standard Ping put- 
ter." Oh yes indeed, golf can bring 
the worst out in o human being. The 
worst dress sense, the worst excuse 
for drinking, the worst reason for tak- 
ing a good walk. So how have 
Ocean and The Really Interesting 
Software Company, oh and Pringle - 
the people who are sponsoring this 
game and who used to make the 
slacks and sweaters worn by 
Southend Utd fans in 1986 - emu- 
lated this sport? 



Not badly really. If you are one 
of those Amiga gamers that comes 
into the 'I demand realism from my 
sports sims' camp, the kind of person 
who worships the ability to check 
brake linings on driving games, the 
kind of person who sees choosing 
player sponsorship as more impor- 
tant than goals in footy games, then 
you're going to be reasonably 
impressed by International Open 
Golf Championship (lOGCj. 

And there's another plus for 
gomers who are just into games - 
IOGC not only wins prizes for hav- 
ing one of the longest games names 
ever (beating PGA Tour Golf by a 
good head) it also does what many 
people thought was the undo-able, it 
adds something to the genre. That's 
right, many of us pundits had been 
crying out for some software house 




You should see this background In motion. In fact you can ut this background In motion If you 
use the little camera Icon thingie. This gives you several views. Including the rather metaphysical 
Balls Eye View'. The only problem Is that It all goes so Incredibly slowty. Fore! 




Urgfihhhh! What's all this blue stuff doing on tho pitch rof? That'i a water 
trap you fool, and It's not a pitch. It's a course. Now rehlt tha ball. 




Like this you mean? Tha young lad In tha yellow Prlngte shows exactly what 
he can do with a strip o# metal and a pair of white towelling socks.

somewhere to get rid of the bor for 
power and snap that was taken to its 
zenith by PGA Tour. We demanded 
something new, some more realistic 
way of playing Amiga golf. And 
someone listened. 

Slow mover 

We'll leave what this 
exciting new thing is for 
a while and talk 
instead about the 
fact that this game is 
obviously a PC port, 
and quite obviously 
needs a powerful 
PC to run it. The rea- 
son for this assumption 
is that running on a stan- 
dard A 1200, everything 
seems to run at the speed of 
Jack Nicklaus sprinting for the 
Sunday papers while submerged in 
a bucket of honey and custard. 

All the 3D effects, the million 
camera angles, the choice of skins, 
fourplay, strokeplay or matchplay; 
the fly-by, the fact thai a putt of two 
yards or less will be sunk for you, all 
these options are undermined by the 
sloth of the whole thing. 

Now this doesn't mean that 
IOGC is not the ideal mid-point 
between Links and PGA, because it 
is. While it lacks PGA's speed and 
simplicity of gameplay, it does 
include the myriad options and 
good-looks of Links. It just means that 
the screen can get too cluttered and 
the boll does travel too slowly. 

And now the moment you've 
been waiting for... the big difference 




in gameplay is in the way you actu- 
ally hit the ball. Where other golf 
games make use of the bar with one 
click of the mouse for power, and 
one click of the mouse for the 'snap' 
(whereabouts you hit the ball, either 
in the middle, to the left or to the 
right), IOGC uses an elegant sys- 
tem comprising four levels of 
power (full, three-quarter, 
half, and quarter) for 
each club. You simply 
click on these. Then 
you actually get to see 
the ball and choose 
where on it you are 
going to hit. This is 
achieved much in the 
same way as many 
Amiga darts games by using 
a defining targeting point with a 
built-in wobble. You get to see a 
small image of the ball (and its lie) 
with a small point that floats around, 
you then have to position the point in 
the ball and click the mouse when 
you're happy. This system really 
does knock spots of the older method 
by involving you in a far more realis- 
tic approach to your play - every 
shot has to be different and this 
means that your concentration has to 
be at optimum all around the course. 

The downsides 

The two versions we received for 
review, one worked fine with the 
graphics coming up a dream, one 
A 1200 (another Al 200 lost the left- 
hand screen but that was probably 
the machine's fault) but the other set 
of four disks showed horribly cor- 




rupted sky and background graph- 
ics. Advice here is to try the game 
before you leave the shop with it (if 
you're buying mail order, make sure 
they'll accept faulty goods on return). 

Another downer is the inability 
to choose your own clubsl You are 
stuck with a basic set of woods, 
irons, wedges and putters, and this 
collection does not include the trusty 
old one iron I A nightmare for most 
serious, late night, bourbon drinking 
Amiga golfers. 

The upsides 

But to finish on the upside you can 
choose three levels of skill, although 
it is only on Master that things really 
get interesting with the wind coming 
into play. All in all, IOGC is far from 
classic but nearer to very good than 
you might expect. Also, the Pringle 
sponsorship really makes a differ- 
ence. I really must go and pur-chase 
an expensive (but very high quality) 
sweater right nowl

new Inhabitants. Now where was that power-up? 




ho remembers 
James Cameron's 
special effects 
extravaganza The 
-Abyss? Well for those who don't, get 
it out on video, and for your informa- 
tion it was set in a research station 
that was on the bed of the Pacific. 
Surprisingly, this is much the same 
setting that Deepcore uses, along 
with a liberal helping of a style 
that's reminiscent of the Bitmap 
Brothers' Gods. 

But Gods isn't the only game 
which springs to mind when play- 
ing Deepcore - the introduction is 
stylish and smacks of Psygnosis on a 
good day. 

In ICE's latest platformer the plot 
is the usual fayre - aliens 
have invaded and it's 
up to you, 

Captain 
Dawnrazor, to clear 'em out. 
Deepcore requires all the usual jump- 
ing around from you, collecting the 
occasional power-up and shooting 
anything that moves. 

The game is divided into three 
different sections, and these are then 
subdivided into three, so there are 



nine large levels to explore. Each 
section has a different graphical 
style and as you get further into the 
game new elements are introduced. 
These include lifts to aid you in your 
exploration of the platforms and big- 
ger, nastier, altogether tougher 
aliens. Finding your way round each 
level is easy, it's just a case of find- 
ing the right keys to open the locked 
doors which block your route. So if 
you don't have the correct key for a 
particular door then 
you have to traipse 
around until you 
find it. 




Occasionally 
doors can be shot at and blown up, 
but this is fairly rare. 

Deepcore looks and sounds 
good; it's professionally drawn and 
has some sleek little touches - pud- 
dles of water at the bottom of the 
screen reflect the action at 1 80 
degrees, and ripples like... well 
water really. There are some neat 



mechanical samples for the machine- 
like aliens, and the water dripping is 
a constant background reminder of 
where you are. 

Dotted around the levels are 
stacks of enemies of all shapes and 
sizes, and this is what helps maintain 
your interest in the game - wonder- 
ing what the next alien will look like. 
What's disappointing about the 
aliens is their apparent lack of intelli- 
gence - they just walk (or fly) 
forwards and backwards along set 
paths. This makes killing them easy 
because you know what they are 
going to do next, unlike in Gods, for 
example, where the enemies are far 
less predictable. 

Playing the game is fun. The con- 
trol of Captain Dawnrazor is flexible 
- he runs and jumps as you would 
expect. Also useful is the ability to 
fire and change direction in mid-air. 
Doors are used by pushing up and 
fire together when you are standing 
directly in front of them. But this 
causes the only complaint we have 
about the control system. When you 
are standing in front of a door it is 
not possible to duck or jump. So, 
quite often, as you come out of a 
doorway you are stuck in the line of 
fire. Not an ideal situation if your 
last sliver of energy disappears in a 
hail of unavoidable fire! As per nor- 
mal three lives are provided, so there 
is always the chance it wasn't your 
last life (although, if Sod's 
Law has any 

thing to do with it, 

it usually is). 

The difficulty level of Deepcore is 
pitched quite high and you will not 
finish this game in a week. But pass 
words are provided at the end of 
each section which save you from 
having to trudge through all the early 
levels again. However, although this 
game takes some time to complete, it 
doesn't have an addictive enough 
edge to keep you coming back for 
more, which sadly is Deepcore's 
only real downfall.

** Frantically fast 
and superbly

this Defencfer-styl< 
shoot-em-up from 
being off instant 
classic status *" 



If you die without playing 
Defender, then you will have 
lived an unfulfilled life. Even 
though it's ages old and had 
wireframe backgrounds and small 
sprites, the Williams classic is the 
game to which all others must be 
compared when it comes to payabil- 
ity in a shoot-em-up. 

Mark Sibly of Vision 
Software likes Defender. 
He's already written the 
definitive Defender clone, 
Defendo. Now on his sec- 
ond commercial game (he 
wrote Woody's World\ he 
has created a time-warped- 
to-the-Nineties Defender 
inspired shoot-em-up - Overkill. 

Overkill is the world's first AGA- 
only game and is very playable. At 
first it looks a bit naff, but when you 
sit down and pick up the joystick, all 
vestiges of amateurism fall away. 
Overkill is fast - in the speeding 
bullet class - and it's smooth too. 
No matter how many baddies crowd 
on to the screen, it never slows 
down, and the animation is never 
less than rock steady. All of this in 
AGA, and with some of the most 




undetectable parallax scrolling ever 
not seen on the Amiga. 

Although it takes its cues from 
Defender. Overkill isn't quite a 
clone. Admittedly it's still a horizon- 
tally scrolling shoot-em-up, you ore 
still trying to protect men on the 
ground, and you can even collect 
them and carry them below your 
ship just like... Defender. 
But there's no hyperspace in 
Overkill, and you can't 
actually lose your men, 
though you don't get an 
end of level bonus for sav- 
ing them, either - rats! 
Your little chappies ore 
making a planetfall to find 
deposits of Trilithium crystals 
and destroy them. If your cosmic 
commandos don't succeed, the alien 
hordes will transmutale into even 
bigger and badder aliens. Smart 
bombs are replaced by a shield fea- 
ture. You'll need it, but as Vision 
Software boss Simon Armstrong 
says: "The shield is for wimps!" 

No game's perfect - this one 
comes on two disks but it doesn't 
make use of a second drive, which 
isn't as inexcusable as it sounds. 

4* 



The last level hat tome of the most Incredible 
parallai scroMntf ever teen. 

The intro end code load from disk 
one, there is one disk swap and then 
you're playing. There is only one 
more disk swap needed to complete 
the game. 

The difficulty curve is smooth, 
and though it's a tough number to 
complete, more variety in the 
behaviour of the aliens would not 
have gone amiss. The game also 
suffers from a distinct lack of super- 
bad end-of-level bosses. 

Beefs aside, Overkill is fast, fre- 
netic and fun, and it's AGA only. So 
if, like me, you have been bleating 
about the lack of At 200 software, 
now's the time to put your money 
where your mouth is.

Catch 

the parachutists 

for big points. 





e oil want lo go to 
heaven, right? 
That's alt Blob 
wants. This ball of 
gunge lives by a religion which 
preaches thai those who do well in 
life will go to bouncy paradise and 
live forever, which sounds great. 
How much easier could it be? 

Left to his own devices Blob 
would probably live a perfectly good 
life, but this turns out to be distinctly 
more difficult than you might expect, 
mainly because for a little blue drop 
of grot a good life involves complet- 
ing 50 levels of excessive bouncing, 
huge precipitous drops and nerve- 
wrenching jumps into nothingness. 

Relying on your gaming skill to 
help him live the saintly life of plat- 
form success, Blob puts his eternal 
future into your capable hands. 
What our ball-shaped chum does to 
help, basically, is bounce around all 
over the show, which gives this 
game a look and feel not dissimilar 
from the old 8-Bil classic Bounder. 

The idea is that you guide this 
bouncing blue Blob around the levels 
of the game. Somewhat strange 
levels, mind you. 

Did I say strange? No, that's on 
understatement. This gome is unique. 
For starters, loads of coloured tiles 
hang in space at different heights 
giving it a depth (literally) that other 
platform games don't have - and 




Meet Blob. the cute Utile blue guy wtth a rather 
pained expression. Obviously my gaming skills 
are somewhat lacking or he'd be more cheerful. 

aliens buzz around getting in the 
way, robbing Blob of all his vitality. 
All in oil, this is one of the most origi- 
nal arcode games, in both style and 
presentation, that you've seen in a 
long while. 

Orrible little lump 

Levels can be completed in two main 
ways. The first is to find a tile that 
has 'Exit' written on it (whoah, better 
watch out - a bit of normality creep- 
ing in there). The second is slightly 
more interesting (and distinctly more 
difficult) and involves collecting all 
the 'collectibles' (the manual's word, 
not mine) on a level. 

Collectibles are strange-looking 
little objects which sit on tiles in all 
the most unreachable areas of the 
levels, which essentially means thai 




What looks a little like Putty but plays like 
nothing you've seen before? A platformer that 
takes you in and out of the screen as well as 
up, down and sideways, that's what. 










\ 



The next level down, and the arrows visible In 
the previous picture are what Blob Is now 
sitting on. Follow the arrows to reach the exit. 

extreme contortions of the joystick 
are required if you're to get the little 
bouncing fellow anywhere near the 
requisite objects 

Occasionally before you can 
complete a level you have to save a 
set number of Spods as well. 'What 
the hell is a spod?' you may well be 
asking. Well, it's another blue, 
blobby lifeform. except smaller OK? 
Glad we got that sorted out 

Hopefully by this time you're 
getting the general idea that 
this game oozes original- 
ity and variety. Probably 
the most unique aspect, 
though, is the very 
three-dimensional 
nature of the view and 
of the play. Just looking 
at the screenshots it's diffi- 
cult to gain the feeling of 
perspective that you get when it's 
all moving around. 

This 3D-perspective adds a 
whole new 'dimension' (groan I) to 
the gomeplay It also makes the 
control system more than a bit tricky 
to get the hang of, because you 
have to judge not only direction and 
distance but height as well. The poor 
blobby one is likely to suffer at the 
start, while your brain tries to odapt 
to thinking in three dimensions at the 
same lime as staring at a two dimen- 
sional screen Pass the aspirin...

Down again, and Blob's looking happier since 
he hasn't been dropped from a great height. In 
tact. I died and pieyed the level again. Whoops! 

Glob of grout 

After fathoming out how to control 
the wee Blob, it's time to try to get 
somewhere. Landing on different 
coloured tiles has different effects on 
the way Blob bounces Red tiles 
make him bounce much higher than 
normal while blue tiles stop him from 
bouncing almost completely as they 
absorb all the bounce energy, 
leaving him helplessly stranded. 
Ice nles leave Blob with no 
directional control when he 
hits them, which can often 
eave you yelling abuse 
at the screen while Blob 
goes skidding uselessly 
off into the void beck- 
oning below... 
Other interesting 
extras to the levels are 
such joys as fans. These can 
either suck or blow: if they blow 
then Blob can float on top of the 
column of air, but if they suck then 
Blob is pulled down rapidly fans 
can help you to find hidden parts of 
the level, but more often thon not 
they just mess up your perfectly 
positioned jump. 

Switches abound throughout the 
levels and are used to turn hidden 
platforms on and off, which is 
extremely useful on the frequent 
occasions when there seems to be no 
way of getting to a particular plot- 
form. Some of the puzzles can be 
quite hard and require extremely 
accurate bouncing and occasionally 
a little luck to solve. 

landing safely after a bounce 
can be a problem because if Blob 
falls too far he can hurt himself on 
impact. This usually happens after 
bouncing on a red tile which sends 




Earts galore. Try lo get the Spod to follow you to 
the exit and you get more points. You also get to 
feel like a genuinely nice chap, for saving Ks Hte.

Blob inlo orbit. Tiles which Blob has 
landed on loo violently often begin to 
crack and further excessive use of 
force will cause them to break com- 
pletely. This can lead Blob to grief, 
particularly if you were relying on 
the tile that just disintegrated to save 
you from plunging to oblivion. 

The one consolation for the all- 
too-frequent deaths is that it's really 
quite funny. Blob opens his mouth in 
a scream as he dwindles in size and 
disappears inlo the void, with all 
hope of ever reaching bouncing par- 
adise cruelly destroyed by your one 
clumsy move of the joystick... 

The expressions on the face of 
The Blobby One as he gets increas- 
ingly badly injured are amusing - he 
gets more and more depressed and 
eventually explodes as he dies. 

The graphics in general are right 
up to the excellent standards we 
expect from cutesy platform games in 
this day and age, and they move 
beautifully loo. The vertical enlarging 
and shrinking of the platforms as 
they get nearer or further is very well 
done and adds a great feeling of

from a reasonable height kills them off In a satis- 
fying manner, but miss and you get problems... 

depth to the game. The feeling of 
stepping off the edge of a platform 
into gaping nothingness is really 
quite worrying. 

'Wonderfully different', is 
perhaps the easiest way of describ- 
ing this game. There is nothing else 
quite like it. Knowing that the next 
level will probably be even more 
weird than the present one is a great 
incentive to keep playing. 

After a while you definitely begin 
to feel really rather sorry for the poof 
little blue Blob, and you can't help 
but identify with him as he rumbles to 
his doom yet again - though that's 
not going to stop you from resurrect- 
ing him and making the sad 
diminutive lump start all over again I 

Cute platform gomes - we've got 
dozens. But this, like the classic 
Nebulus, takes a new viewpoint 
which makes a world of difference, 
as well as giving us all the puzzles 
and action we expect. A winner.

Absolve your sins, donate to the poor and offer money for the church roof repair fund, these all help 
you In the popularity stakes. Money, always money, but the moro you spend the more you stand to 
make. Bosldes. I'm sure the church coffers need a boost anyway.

ere's o brief history 
resume for those of you 
who ore not au fait with 
14th century Europe The 
Patrician is set in said period and 
you play the part of a struggling mer- 
chant. It was so different in those 
days - the continent was in constant 
stale of change. The Hanseatic 
League - a sort of equivalent to the 
common market - governed 
European trading and its aim was to 
promote free trade between all the 
main cities. What a long way we've 
come in 600 years, eh? 

The League's council was made 
up of all the mayors of the major 
ports in Europe and was led by the 
Alderman. Although you start the 
gome as a minor League merchant, 
your ultimate aim is to rise to the 
heady height of Alderman. To 
achieve this you have to trade first 
and make stacks of cash, which you 
can then spend on furthering your 
political career - money buys power 
- unlike today's democracies, Asil 




Nadir is living proof of that. Not 
only do you have to be loaded but 
you hove to be happily married, oth- 
erwise people don't vote for you (as 
David Mellor will no doubt agree 
come 1994). 

Enough politics - on with hSe 
gameplay. At the start you own just 
one ship and a couple of hundred 
Tholo (currency). The way to increas- 
ing your readies is by trading which 
involves buying and selling (at a 
profit) the many types of goods avail- 
able. This presents your first obstacle 



Rdtffskdler 



Down the local. The denizens of Europe collect and condense Into the fine set of Individuals you see 
arrayed before you. Getting wasted Is not the best of Ideas - see the guy at tho back being dragged 
out by the friendly bouncer. Hiring and firing Is your best bet In this watering hole. 



- trading is not easy initially and con 
often result in you drifting aimlessly 
from port to port unable to find a 
favourable price for a commodity 
you've got on your ship. If you get 
stuck with goods it is possible to 
store them in a warehouse for later 
resale. Of course, if you're very 
clever you could buy corn in the sum- 
mer when it's plentiful and cheap 
and make a killing in a winter mar- 
ket place. 

Loan shark 

So the main problem during the 
early stages of your trading life is 
money, or lack of it. It can be incred- 
ibly frustrating to see a commodity 
such as wine or pepper at compara- 
tively low prices and not being able 
to afford them. But this can be allevi- 
ated by judicious use of your limited 
funds and by trading cheaper items. 
Or alternatively, you can acquire o 
healthy cash Row by doing a deal 




Buy It, sell It. or even organise a convoy. 
Access to the highly exclusive (and expensive) 
trade leagues Is gained here as well.

buy your goods! Honest. Ihey an*. 

with the Money Lender. This guy will 
organise loans, usually at exorbitant 
rates of interest, which can be 
repaid as and when you get enough 
money. But if you go over the repay- 
ment deadline, creditors will come 
snapping at your heels like a pack of 
voracious pitbulls. And if you haven't 
got the money they want, then it's 
bon voyage to one of your ships, 
which can be catastrophic if you 
only have a single vessel. 

Fortunately, new ships con be 
built for you at any port of call. The 
ships available range from the small 
but speedy pinnace, to the heavy 
and wallowing galleons. Which one 
you choose will depend on how big 
your load is and how quickly you 
need to shift it. Constant use of your 
ships obviously takes its toll and 
ships get damaged, and your jour-

neys lake longer lo complete. 
Repairs are easy if you have enough 
Thala, but if you neglect them then 
your vessels will Rounder in a storm, 
or sink with a full cargo and crew 
aboard, which as well as being terri- 
bly sad, is economically unsound. 

Boozing boss 

Hiring and firing crew and helpers is 
done in the local watering hole, and 
this is done by clicking on the vari- 
ous people inside. Click on the 
drunks being dragged out of the pub 
to press-gang a crew at one Thala 
per employee, or if you want to 
maintain business at home click on 
the guys sitting quietly at the back 
and these will act as helpers at your 
warehouses. 

The hard looking blokes at the 
front are your ordinary everyday 
dodgy arms dealers, whose services 
you need, because of the danger 
that lurks on many trade routes. The 
high seas are not a safe place to be 
- pirates, storms and even sea mon- 
sters can obstruct your route to 
fortune and fame. Even bad 
weather, the captain getting seasick, 
or even green toadstools growing in 
the galley can change your plotted 
course, or force the ship to find land, 
or worse turn about. When such inci- 
dents strike they can really screw up 



your planned trade route, dumping 
you somewhere you don't want to 
be. If you're particularly unlucky 
pirates attack your ship and you 
have lo fight them off with weapons 
onboard This fighting sequence is 
optional with the computer working 
out the outcome if you do not partici- 
pate. If you lose, then another ship 
vanishes from your fleet at a time 
when your fleet should be growing.

put the money to use on self

and hopefully becoming Alderman 
of the Hanseatic League. To achieve 
high political status you have to

you borrow money from a man wfth a smile and a glare like that? He certainly doesn't look like 
he's about to say yes. Well tough, he's your only source of money as you start off your life as a trader. 



Honseotic Council. 

You can gain popularity in your 
home town in several ways. The first 
and easiest way is to throw a mas- 
sive party for all the plebs. The only 
downer is the cost, but political pop- 
ularity doesn't come cheap. It is vital 
to provide enough food and drink, 
otherwise the townsfolk go home 
hungry and distinctly sober; get them 
absolutely inebriated and they'll 
think you'll make a great politician! 

So what exactly do you have to 
do if you need lo regain vital votes? 
Well you can always bribe your 

peers. This is done at the local 

bathing house. Just slide into the 
tub next to them, and if you have 
enough money then they will 
arrange for you to get a few extra 
votes in the next election. 

But it's not as simple as thot, 
bribery can lead to you being 
blackmailed and you either have to 
have a regular direct debit to your 
blackmailer, or you will be 
reported to the appropriate authori- 
ties. This will result in a trial where 
you can be fined or if you're lucky 
and not found guilty, you will be 
compensated. 

Control of the game is easy. It is 
entirely mouse based and involves 
no icons. You just use the left button 
to select something on screen and 
the right button for returning to the 
previous screen. This makes for a 
totally intuitive system so that all of 
your concentration can be directed 
at actually playing the game, and 
not struggling with studying the 
instructins in the manual. 

The Patrician will absorb your 
attention until the wee small hours as 
you become engrossed in the intrica- 
cies of the game's wheeling and 
dealing and you will find keeping 
your political head above water 
almost as difficult as keeping dry in 
Mississippi. 

Playing it will keep even the most 
die-hard platform freaks among us 
glued to their machine, yelling out 
loudly with frustration at the high 
price of corn in medieval Hamburg! 
Just like you do.

A stunntng result for the Austrian m he comet hopping over the finishing line. Two points here. Isn't it strange that all the athletes are running In lime, 
and secondly, I didn't know that ZZ Top were also International athletics Judges. 




After a hard day drinking beer, smoking fags 
and eating chip butties what could be better 
than a nice, relaxing sport sim? 



I've just had some quite remark- 
able news. It seems that these 
French lads have come up with 
a 1 0-event sports simulation. 
Errrrrrrr... Well done! Given that the 
bandwagon left town over five years 
ago, there could only be one reason 
for bringing out this sort of sports sim 
now, and that would be to bring it 
up to date. You know; bigger, better 
graphics than ever before, amazing 



sound and a cunning new interface 
that leaves you gasping at its awe- 
some simplicity. Unfortunately Super 
Sport Challenge has none of these. 

Eventful, hardly 

The gome offers you the chonce to 
compete in 10 events, from the ath- 
letics field to the swimming pool: 
100m, 1 10m hurdles, pole vault, 
long jump, shot putt, high jump. 



triple jump, 100m freestyle, 4 x 
100m freestyle relay and the javelin. 
It doesn't take a genius to realise 
however, that the 4 x 100m freestyle 
relay is the 1 00m freestyle repeated 
four times. 

Up to four people can compete 
at a time, each representing a 
country of their choice, although 
joystick port limitations meons 
that in race events only two 
actually compete against each 
other at any one time. 

The controls for each event 
vary, from the simple to the unus- 




"Who are those four mugs In the top left hand 
corner. Yet, that'* what Mlcrolds think you and 
your friends look like." 

able. In the first category is the 
100m where you start running by 
pressing fire, and push the joystick to 
the right when you want to run 
faster. Now this may be less expen- 
sive on joysticks than Track and Field 
style button bashing, but it's difficult 
to feel like you're actually involved in 
helping your athlete win. 

In contrast the pole vault requires 
you to push fire to start running, 
move the joystick left to increase 
your run up speed, push fire to plant 
your pole, pull back on the joystick 
to bend the pole, press fire to lift 
yourself up the pole and then move 
the joystick left to clear the bar. 
Which is as difficult as it sounds. 

The real gomeplay comes in the 
control of your energy level. At the 
bottom of the screen is a bar display 
showing the amount of energy you 
have. This is never enough for maxi- 
mum effort all the way through an 
event, and the trick lies in using your 
energy sparingly. In the jumping 
events there's little point in arriving 
at the board at 1 OOmph if you're too 
tuckered to lift yourself into the air. 
Similarly, in the race events there's 
no point to racing away from the 
field and leading for the first half if 
they all catch you up when you're 
doing a dying fish impersonation 

down the home straight. 

One of the worst points of 
Super Sport Challenge is that 
during most events you're 
forced to listen to the most 
annoying sample ever heard 
on a computer game. It sounds 
ike a crowd of 100,000 people 
chanting 'boring' into a flanger; it

Heads bowed In silent contemplation* the Zen Synchronised Swimming Team prepare to compete. 
"Remember lads, don't start meditating while you're underwater, otherwise yotTII find yourself In a 
different state of consciousness - te unconsciousness-" 



I don't think I've ever seen a bunch of more flat-footed athletes In my life, and number two looks 
somewhat hunchbacked. Other than that they look perfectly healthy and able to pass the standard 
urine test wHh no problems whatsoever. 




Our competitor files through the air with the

...and lands badly losing his cool In the process. 

only lasts two seconds, but it never 
stops repeating. Aaaargh! Turn off 
the sound. 

Super Sport Challenge lacks con- 
sistency, you get the feeling that 
different people worked on the differ- 
ent events and nobody co-ordinated 
them properly. On top of this there's 
a serious lack of imagination. It 
doesn't make any difference which 
country you select, you'll always be 
the same athlete; there are no female 
athletes or shots of you on the 
podium if you win a medal; there's 
no celebration when you set a new 
world record and there's unneces- 
sary disk swapping because the 
individual events are stored in the 
wrong order. 

Player bonding 

It's a shame Microids have let these 
sort of problems spoil what might 
have been an exciting game. In 
places the graphics are good ond 
there's an above overage sound- 
track, which could have been 
performed by a close friend of Jean 
Michel Jarre. The four player option 
encourages even the most pale and 
wan gameplayer to have some kind 
of interaction with real people. 

Even though Super Sport 
Challenge does show a lot of 
promise for the future of Microids, it 
is let down by poor execution. You 
can have some fun with it, but it'll 
wear off soon, leaving you bored.

A peculiar aspect ot Super Sport Challenge Is 
the way that every so often your top athlete 
becomes albino.

Ten kicky winner* wW have a great day out. courtesy of Empire, at 
the amazing Challenge Outdoor Pursuits Centre near Tunbridge 
Wells. There you wM spend an adventurous day doing exerting ectrv 
ties such as archery. abaeWng, c a noe in g and testing your frtneaa 

and determination on the assault course! 




mpire celebrate the release of 
Campaign 2 by offering 1 lucky read- 
ers a fun day out and a night in a 
luxury hotel... 
The original Campaign [AF4\ -79 per cent) 
has to be one of the most successful strategy 
wargames ever to appear, adding a beautiful 
graphic approach to a playable, accurate and 
exciting simulation of the Second World War. 

Empire are just about to release the follow-up, 
aptly, if unimaginatively, named Campaign 2, 
which extends the system to cover all weapons 
and theatres of war from 1945 to the present day. 
The player will be able to compete in all the major 
conflicts of the last 45 years. 

Now Empire and Amiga Format are offering 
10 lucky readers, and a guest of their choice, a 



chance lo take it a stage further by going on 
a real life 'Campaign', although at abso- 
lutely no personal danger) Our 10 winners 
(plus guests) will spend a day at the 
Challenge Outdoor Pursuits Centre near 
Tunbridge Wells, charging around the country- 
side doing all manner of exciting things. 

Stretching over 1 47 acres of countryside, the 
activities the Challenge Centre offers include 
archery, abseiling, canoeing, ond you'll olso be 
training on the full assault course with its aerial 
runways and daredevil water crossings! 

What's more next February, when it takes 
place, you'll be defending the honour of Amiga 
Format against a fierce enemy - 20 winners from 
our sister magazine PC Format. Of course our lot 
will wipe the muddy floor with them... 




On top of all this hectic activity, we're making 
it into a genuinely enjoyable weekend out by pro- 
viding you with a night's rest at the luxury Spa 
Hotel in Royal Tunbridge Wells, with a colour TV 
in your room ond a slap-up English breakfast 
awaiting you in the morning. 

It sounds as though it's going to be a great 
weekend away, and of course there's AFs honour 
at slake also. So if you've got the mettle, or if you 
just wanna have fun, then get the grey matter 
pumping and pore over the questions on the other 
page. Good luck! 






1 Simply write down the answers to the questions next to the number of each question 
on a postcard or stuck-down envelope. 

2 Add your own name and address and a telephone number if possible. 

3 Then send it to this address and make sure it reaches us by the last day of October. 
Easy!

CHASE HQ LL SPECIAL 
CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION 

Hit Squad ■ £9.99 ■ (Reviewed AF\ 8 76%) 

More Miami Vice than 
Z-Cars, Chase HQ II hasn't 
got a character called 
Sonny, nor is there a 
crocodile in sight. In (act, the 
introduction of a large rep- 
tile might add considerable 
interest to this affair. How? 
Don't ask stupid questions. 
Anyway, the mayor's 
daughter has been kid- 
napped and you're on the 
case. Actually you're in a 
Corvette - allegedly a real 
one, but I think it's a kil car. 

You must drive along a road until you see an arrow which helpfully states 
'Criminal'. Then (does this sound like a cookery class?) inflict damage upon 

the car until it pulls over. Look out for helicopters, 
as well as men in designer suits. 

It's all very exciting stuff, and in no time at 
all you'll feel like a member of the A-Team, 
probably. Admittedly, it gels a touch repetitive 
after a while but hey, what's repetition when 
the mayor's daughter is your reward.

JOCKY WILSON'S 
COMPENDIUM OF DARTS 

Zeppelin Platinum ■ £7.99 ■ (Reviewed AF\ 8 77%) 

On the box (no, not the 
telly), the boy Jocky sits 
astride a football while 
clutching a dart and a bowl- 
ing ball. It's a disturbing 
sight. He's one of darts' 
great characters - The 
Crafty Scottie, as he's never 
been known. So what's it all 
about then? A compendium 
always sounds to me like 
there's Ludo or Snakes and 
Ladders involved. But no, 
you're enticed by such 

games as Scram and Shanghai, as well os football and 501 . 

The dart appears on screen, moving in a random circular fashion and you 

press on your joystick button when you think the lime is right to let the arrow 

Ry. Not as easy as it sounds I assure you. You 

must feel better now you've been assured. 

Anyway, the graphics are nicely drawn but the 

gameplay sadly lacking. The final word must go lo 

Bully. "Moooo". Cheers Bully. 




It's always nice to play darts against your Dad. His Mttats 
are at the top but I'm reassed out the C because rt stands 
tor Cuthbert and he doesn't want anyone to know about rt.

Whal interesting names these fighters hove. Toi Ping, OK I'll go along with 
that, Gtno - just about passable, but Anna and Sir Gerry - come on, you're 
'avin a larf ain'tcha? And Mickey the Finn? Although he sounds like a ticket 
tout from Bethnal Green, he is actually Swedish. 

Three locations are on offer in which to choose your fist fight (if indeed 
you want to 'have a go') - Egypt, Japan and America. Why don't they ever 
use such places as Sunderland or Bosingstoke? And isn't it time we had 
English small town beat-em-ups where kids from dif- 
ferent housing estates go around looking for bother?

HARDBALL 

Hit Squad ■ £9.99 ■ (Not previously reviewed) 







Hardball - indeed it is 
when you gel hit on the 
inner thigh. I'm sorry to 
quote the box but here 
goes, 'HardBall- base- 
ball that's so true-to-life, 
it's like you can reach out 
and touch it'. That's beau- 
tiful isn't it? And it gets 
better. 'HardBall is so real 
and lifelike, if you wear a 
uniform white you ploy it, 
you just might get it dirty'. 
Marvellous eh? 
Well it probably isn't that 
realistic - I say probably because I haven't attended a baseball game before. 
Nobody offered me o burger or cola during the time I was playing (they 
always do on American telly shows) and the game didn't lost seven hours. 

But Hardball is quite easy to get into and fun after a while - particularly 
the pitching (chucking the ball). There are eight types of pitches including 
ones with exotic names such as slider, sinker and 
screwball - but no googly. You can play the com- 
puter or your mate and also get involved in the 
management side using the Manager's Decision 
Screen. Enjoyable, but not compulsive. 



OH Earl. I'm gonna pitch on* helluva Screwball (Hank) 
'I'm gonna knock this sucker out ve the stadium son'. (Earl)

rats deserting a

Roland was not nappy. He thought he'd made a good account of himseH at the inter 
view. OK. so his pink car wasn't suitable for saving the planet but he'd sorted out a 
great trade-in deal. And he was celebrity. What about press officer? He could do that 
couldn't he? But the Galactic Warrior Rats are a choosy lot. Saving the planet Smeaton 
Five Is serious business. Killer robots are on the loose. Intent, as you may have gath- 
ered, on mayhem and destruction. 

Einstein, Darwin and Newton (the rat's names - don't laugh) must destroy the 
robots, collecting valuable gold lumps In the process which can be used to buy hard- 
ware' at Joe's Automated Weapon Store. Joe's can be visited by logging on at any of 
the computer terminals that you rind around the complex 
(if you know Kevin the Gerbil you get IS per cent discount). 
Similar to games such as Alien Breed. Mean Arenas and 
Universal Warrior, Galactic Warrior Rats is a playable little 
number, although not particularly innovative.

HIGHLAND LEVEL *s BRIGADOOM! 

Make the firs! lemming jump from the second peak on lo the rock, and make 
him a hong glider. Blow him down so that he lands just on the corner below 
the other half of the lems. Use the laser to blast them out. As soon os he's 
through, balloon him left a little so that he turns around. Make the first 
Lemming walk the left rope over to the platform. Hang glide him over to the 
second one, and rope up the other side. Make him a laser blaster when he is 
almost (but not quite) as far left as he can be. 




CIRCUS LEVEL «t HEADACHE 

Make the first lemming a climber. Bomb him through the floor, and move the 
cannon to point through this hole. Wait until he reaches the exit, then jump 
him over it twice. Make him a bomber when he is a third of the way across 
the 16-pixel trampoline. Move the bottom cannon 2.3 chain links right. The 
lemming should walk to the exit If not, fractionally adjust the cannon until he 
does, let the lemmings out by pouring glue twice on the far left, with the lem- 
ming facing right. Bomb at the bottom of the trampoline pit, and then make a 
lemming a fencer, facing right. 




SHADOW LEVEL *s THE SCHOOL OATS

fire an arrow left to the edge of the pool. Now make a lemming to the left of the attrac- 
tor pour glue twice. If rt reaches over jump the attract or. If ft doesn't Jump the lemming 
to the right of the attractor and make him fire a rope at the end. Now jump the attractor. 




Xi SO CLOSE BUT SO EAR AWAY 

Explode the first lemming, and block the fourth lo fall. Make the first lemming 
build over the pit before the edge. Bash through the top, build once he is under 
the steel block. Make one of the two trapped lemmings a climber. Carry on the 
bridge for two more builders, then make him a blocker. Make the just-arriving 



climber build just before he reaches the blocker. Wait, then bash through the 
blockage. Make the other lemming a climber. Make the top climber mine 
through the second blockage, then dig as he reaches the diggable bit right of 
the exit. Explode him as he passes the gap. Explode the blocker once the dig- 
ger goes and make the climber who reaches the bottom build over to the exit. 




BEACH LEVEL 8:

flftedln pits. Make the first Magno booter explode a 
hole In the thin Mt. The next one should lay the first two 
or three blocks of a platform, then jump him and plat- 
form over the other hole. 

The third Magno booter should build a platform 
starting above the two or three bricks already there. 
Make him Jump rf he threatens to run Into the third plat- 
form. Now start a platform from the top of the slope, 
and another when the lemming reaches the gap separat- 
ing him from the exit (jump the following lemming Into

• tf your chopper has taken tots of damage and you 
have completed at least one of the objectives, always go 
back to base. It Is much better to get some points and sur- 
vive than get shot down. You only have to destroy one of 
the objectives for the mission to be successful. 

• tf you are about to be shot down or do not have 
enough power to take off again, use the end mission func- 
tion then at least you have a chance of being rescued. 

• Use the F8 (inverse Tactical) view to see other tar- 
gets around the primary or secondary target areas. 
Progressing through the difficulty levels. 

• To get the best scores, reach the highest ranks and 
get the highest decorations you will need to be playing the 
game on the hardest difficulty levefs. 

• Progress through the difficulty options in this order:- 
1) First of m set flight to the realistic setting. This is 



the hardest part of the game to get used to. Always make 
small adjustments to the controls and get used to watch- 
ing the altitude dials and readouts on the HUD very cto eety. 
ALWAYS be ready to adjust the torque slightly. 

2) Next set the Wind and visibility swttches to the 
reabstic settings. 

3) Now turn off the ground avoidance, always make 
sure you don't hft the ground at aH costs. By this time you 
should have flown about 15 missions and be able to fly the 
realistic flight model comfortably. 

4) Now turn on the realistic landings. Just remember 
to make sure that you descend very slowly when landing. 

5) To get the Congressional Medal Of Honour you 
need to be playing the game on the full difficulty level and 
on a flight or campaign mission, ft is easiest when both 
mission targets are groups of vehi cl es- It also helps rf the 
mission objectives are close to base as your flight time wirl 
be quick. Destroy targets on the map. Look for extra tar- 
gets which may not be near your mission objectives.

Some of the hottest ducks, dives and tips for sensational game play come from you, the

queries and snippets of advice to help you play like an expert. 



WE HAVE LIFT OFF 

In issue 47, Gordon Hayes asked 
how to take off with the spaceship 
in Scary Mutant Space Aliens From 
Mars. Well, I've thought about it, 
and have come up with the answer. 
Put the cheese from the refriger- 
ator in the spaceship's garbage 
can. Log on lo the computer, using 
the hacker's note that is found in 
your manual (the real one which 
came with the game), then type 
your destination number. And off 
you gol 

Mattis Folkestad 
Hamaroy, Norway 
Hurrah! Thanks Mattis, that one's 
been going for quite a while now. 
Have a copy of Lemmings 2 with 
our compliments. 

REV UP LEMMINGS 




Be sure to have a CD In the CD drive when 
loading Lemmlngt 2 on to a CDTV. 

I noticed that someone was having 
a bit of a problem running 
Lemmings 2 on their CDTV 
(Answerfile, issue 49). Well the sim- 
ple solution to this is to hove a CD 
present in the CD drive while you 
ore loading Lemmings 2 - that way 
you should find the game loads and 
works as normal.

IT'S HO PUSHOVER 




. ■■'• » 



Can you handle level 32 of Pushover? As the 
clock ticks, you have to move a lot of blocks. 

Con you help me with Pushover? 
I am stuck on level 32 - I don't 




have enough time to move all the 
delay blocks from one side to the 
other. Is there a cheat or a solution? 

Mrs L M Mann 
Aberdeen 
Well, the code for level 33 is 
25)02 - but unfortunately we do 
not have a solution. Hope that 
helps, though. 

CATCH THAT CRAB 




It all else fails when you try *o build a crab 
catcher In tndy 4. nick someone else's lunch! 

I'm in the crab room trying to catch 
a crab in Indy 4 adventure, but 
I can't get a crab trap together. 
Apparently you should make it out 
of the gum and the ship rib, but it 
doesn't work - help! 

Martin Lewis 
Darlington 
You need to use the gum, the cold 
cuts, the bread or the submarine 
sandwich in the rib cage, then put 
the baited cage in the pool. If you 
don't have one or more of these 
ingredients, I'm afraid you will just 
have to beat up the guard and 
pinch his lunch!

Cheating In SWIV Isn't m »»y u II teem*. 
But tak« our advice and It thoutd go smoothly- 

Why won't the cheat for SWIV 
work on my A600? I've paused it, 
typed NCC1 701 , but it won't work. 
What om I doing wrong? 

Philip Black 
Plymouth 
Ah well, the cheat that you have 
isn't quite right What you should 



do is press P to pause, and type 
NCCI701. then press N. The 
screen will Rash, then press P to 
restart the game 

IT'S OUT OF ORDER 




Trytnc to fix the wen In Curse of EncAantla has 
gone to his head. If only he'd listened to us. 

In Curse of Enchontia, I have to 
throw a coin into a well to moke the 
gameshow host appear. However, 
there is an Out Of Order sign on 
the wall. How on earth do I moke 
the well work? 

Tim Ciaridge 
Everywhere 
When you have finished everything 
on the level - that is, taken all of the 
boulders, given them to the rock 
basher, taken the coin, tied the wire 
to the loops, taken the mud and 
worn the helmet (phewl] - the Out 
Of Order sign will disappear After 
all that, you should find that the 
well works perfectly. 

BEAT THE BEASTIES 




Don't set barbecued bj the toast** in £M» 2 
- foftow Andy's tip* for success! 

I need some assistance to complete 
Elvira 2. I hove rescued Elvira, res- 
urrected the priest, and returned all 
the shaman's artifacts to him. When 
I ask the priest for help he mentions 
drawing pentodes, but he won't 
actually do it. So when I reach the 
parking lot I get barbecued by the 
beastie. Helpl 

A Bettley 
Eastbourne) 
You need to make the priest draw a 
pentode of blood in the parking lot, 
then give the pipe to the chief and 
get him to bless the magic bag. the 



war-lance and the tomahawk. In the 
parking lot, lay out the candles on 
the pentode and light them. Then 
use the magic bag to summon 
Cerberus. Use a Bind Demon spell. 
Then as soon as the lightning sub- 
sides, throw the lance at him and 
throw the tomahawk straight 
through his heart. 

AN ALL TIME LOW 

Fred Maughon (Helping Hand, 
issue 48) said he couldn't get under 
one of the barriers in Castle Master 
because it was too low. To get 
under it you must go in the door- 
way nearby, and walk along to the 
next wall so that you don't fall off 
the balcony. Go out another door, 
and you will be on the other side of 
the barrier. 

Matthew Fletcher

Cheers Matthew, I'm sure our 
64-year-old adventurer can rest in 
peace now.

Het* I* a Wnpte IFF picture, one of the original d«mo picture* by Mm Sachs 



In the last of our AMOS tutorials on the AMOS programming language, 
we look at icons and blocks, plus a quick word about AMAL. 



HERE WE ARE ogo.n for a 
last helping of do it yourself AMOS 
programming. We've covered 
almost every focel of the language 
over the last 10 months, ond just 
about the only thing we haven't 
really touched on to uny great extent 
are icons, screen blocks and AMAL. 




11*

MMN 



tort 



SSSS 15 ^ 



Ah now, AMAL We wanted to have 
a word with you about that. Come 
in, sit down. Tea? Oh alright. The 
thing is there won't be any more 
AMAL stuff than we already told 
you. Why? Most serious AMOS pro- 
grammers don't use the stuff, simply 
because you can do things 
just as well with AMOS 
proper which don't start to 
mess things up when you 
compile, like AMAL does. 
AMAL is precompiled, so 
there are no speed bene- 
fits anyway, ond why run 
the risk of a clash, or 
worse still a crash? 
There are plenty of 
books available on 
AMOS which give you 
as much information 
on AMAL as you could 
possibly want, if for 
example you don't really want 



«,htch 



to compile anything. 

Right that's got the dust of AMAL 
off our boots, let's forge ahead into 
untrammelled wastes of icons and 
screen blocks. 

Icon see clearly now 

Icons mean something different in 
AMOS than they do in most comput- 
ing. In Workbench they are a picture 
of a disk on the Workbench which 
lets you manipulate files with a 
mouse rather than by typing things 
into the computer. Icons in AMOS, 
however, are pieces of background 
graphic, which can be stored in a 
memory bonk like any other kind of

GET AMOS FOR CHEAP 

The tutorial on that* paces ta 
to help you get the most from the pro- 
gramming Language AMOS If you don t 
hare AMOS, but would Hit to have i 
go at programming on your own, you're 
tn kick because 4/nfca Format Featured 
the co mple t e AMOS program on the 
January 1993 Covenftsk. Now, rf you 
don't buy that Issue, here's another 
chance to get your hands on AMOS - 
turn now to page 162 and order your 



and unstofing whole screens each 
time you want a new background. 
It's like riling a kitchen or a bathroom 
with patterned tiles, each tile is the 
same and only very small in size, but 
put a lot of them together and you 
cover a lorge area with an interest- 
ing pattern. 

Most games consist of a lot of 
different screens, and if these were 
full size IFF screens, your average 
arcade game would be about 3Mb 
in size. Therefore the easy way out is 
to make small square graphics, 
called tiles, and paste these on to the 
screen over and over. This means 
that, say you have a graphic of a 
wall, in which most of the tiles are 
the same except for the one which 
has a lamp fitting, a bit of moss or a 
door in it. This means that you can 
build the whole wall from just five 
tiles, repeating them over and over 
as you go along, and just varying 
the type of tile you put down to odd 
a lime bit of interest. 

The icons ore put to the screen in 
what we'd call "replace mode", so 
anything on the screen wilt be 
erased by the new graphic. This is 
distinct from the modes for, say, 
sprites and bobs which don't inter- 
fere with the background at all. 
(Note: Sprites ond bobs will move 
over icon backgrounds with the ease 
they would over a full screen IFF 
graphic.) Icons, as we've already 
explained, are the more permanent 
way of storing backgrounds as mem- 
ory banks of small portions or tiles of 
graphics, and this is the most mem- 
ory effective way of creating 
backgrounds. 

You can get an icon tile from an 
IFF file like you can with bobs or 
blocks, but the best way is to create 
your icon tiles in an editor of some 
sort and save them as a bank. You 
can create them in SpriteX or a simi- 
lar Bob program, and if the editor 
doesn't save as Icons you can 
always run the resultant bob bank 



through o program like 
ICON_CONV.AMOS by Shadow 
Software 

To save you the trouble if you 
can't find a program to do the job, 
here is how to write your own simple 
icon grabber: 

Flash Off : Cls 
Shared N.X,Y,X1 ,X2, Yl . Y2 

First the usual set-up guff, plus a little 
file requester call to load a picture. 
This picture should be some back- 
ground patterns you wish to grab, 
and in IFF format from a program 
like Deluxe Paint 

N 1 
DirSr-dfO:' 

Bel$C*. iff,", 'Choose 

an IKK 1 i le") 
toad Iff K$,0 

The main loop below lets you grab 
an area and store the variables of 
the start and finish positions so the 
area can be grabbed as an Icon. 

DO 

X^X Mouse : Y=Y Mouse 
If Mouse Clicks. 1 Then 

_START 

if Mouse CHck=%10 Then 

X$ inkeyS 

(I X$ ; "s" Then _SAVK 
Uxyp 
-ocedure _START 

XI. X Screen(O.X) : Y1--Y 
Screen(O.Y) 

Shoot 
End Proc 
Procedure _END 

X2=X Screen(0,X) : Y2 Y 
Screen <0,Y) 

_GRABIT 
&id Proc 

The two variables are then fed to the 
GRAB procedure which uses the GET 
ICON command to store the icon 
into a bonk. 



Procedu i • - _ GRABIT 

on N.X1.Y1 TO X2,Y2 

Bell 

Inc N 
Bid Proc 

and finally your bonk is saved to 
disk using the file requester again. 

Proo _SAVE 

l$|".dbk* ( ",'iwe 
icon bank" ) 
Save P$,2 

End Proc 

To grab an icon using the program 
you press the left button at the top 
left corner of the icon, and press the 
right button at the bottom right cor- 
ner. The left burton press is confirmed 
by a Shoot sound, and the right by a 
Bell sound. The icon is then grabbed 
into an icon in bank 2. The number 
of the icon is given by the variable 
N, and this is incremented as you go 
to place the icon in the next slot 
along in the bank. 

Finally, when you are ready to 
save off the icon bank, press the 'a' 
key, and the save requester will pop 
up, allowing you to save the bank to 
disk as any filename you choose. 
This isn't the best program you can 
make, but it's short and it shows you 
the way you would do it if you were 
going to write a more complex util 
for this purpose. 

Living in a Blocks 

AMOS also provides you with what 
it calls Screen Blocks, and these are 
just like Icons except that they ore 
really only temporary screen shapes. 
Blocks aren't stored with your pro- 
gram and cannot be saved to a 
memory bank. There's no real need 
to save them either, as they are 
grabbed from the screen and 
chonces are that you have the screen 
from which the block was grabbed. 
This short program demonstrates 
the grabbing of a Screen Block and 



moving it obout in real time: 

Load Iff "your picture. if f ", 

First load a picture and make sure it 
goes into screen by appending the 
command with ",0". 

For X=0 To 7 

For Y=0 To 9 

Gel Block 
X*10+Y*1,X*32,Y*20.32,20 

Next Y 
Next X 

Next a loop, or a pair of nested 
loops which grab a block from the 
screen. 

Do 

Put Block 
Rnd ( 4 8 ) + 1 . Rnd ( Screen 
Width) +l,Rnd (Screen Height |*1 
Loop 



Off : Curs 

Lo< 
m't W) ■ • me. . . * 

This sets up the basic screen to give 
us something to print over. Then we 
trigger the AlERT procedure and 
wait for a key to finish the demo. 

-F-RT 

Wait Key 

Next the _ALERT procedure itself, 
which starts simply by specifying the 
area of the block to be saved. 



Proce- 

W=160 : 




X=80 : 



The GET BLOCK command grabs the 
area which is about to be overwrii 
ten and hold it temporarily in 
memory. 



TECH HELP IS AT HAND IF YOU NEED IT 



tf you have any Initial problem* with your

i a 



and 112 per year (113 ovaraaw) 
of Om NwiWIai 



And finally a loop to randomly place 
that block to the screen. Of course, 
once you know that the command is 
grabbing the correct area of the 
screen for the block, you could grab 
it under the main screen in screen 1 
or similar, so the user doesn't see the 
grab happen. 

Danger, danger! 

You con also use blocks to good 
effect in slightly more technical pro- 
grams. Take an alert box, for 
example. The block covering the 
words in this program can be recov- 
ered using block technology...

Next we draw the alert over the text

how the box is the same size and 
location as the bit we just rescued 









The same demo picture as the one on the opposite page by Jim Sachv but this time It has been put 
through the random blocking program.

this choice of Image does suggest something about the writer's mental state!

then a little noise is made

and finally the block we saved at the 
beginning using Gel Block is 
replaced over the mess we |usl

When you click on the dickbox, 
which is a complete AMOS construct 
rather than any kind of automatic 
alert box, it will go away leaving the 
words underneath intact 

Open the blocks 

This program does a neat trick with 
an area of screen. The effect is not 
unlike a TV digital effect, where a 
picture is moved around the screen. 
You could do this better if you 
loaded another screen under the cur- 
rent one, mess up the lop screen with 
a block from that screen then float in 
segments of the hidden screen on to 
the lop screen and place them.

Any Iff format picture will do, just 
pick your favourite. Then we go:

ELECTRONIC ARTS HAVE 

,i reputation for frequently releasing 

Upgrades to their Deluxe range dI products 
- witness Deluxe hunt, now in ils fourth (or

many industry-wau hers believed dial 

Deluxe Music. KA's offering to Amiga musi- 
cians, had fallen by the wayside. Originally 
released when the Amiga A 1 000 was still 
king. Deluxe Music hasn't been upgraded 
since. Now. some seven years later. Klcctronic 
Arts have redressed the balance with the 



Deluxe Music 2 uses a 
conventional score 
notation approach: 
music is displayed in 
the same format as 
sheet music. This is 
greaSt for beginners, 
because you can type 
in tunes straight from 
the songsheet. 



launch of Deluxe Music 2. possihiv the most 
long-overdue upgrade e\er. 

Deluxe Music 2 is a powerful Composi- 
tion tool thai lets you create music using 
either the Amiga's own internal sound 
capabilities or any number of synthesisers 
mm\ samplers (or a mixture of both) all 
connected to the machine via a standard 
serial port MIDI interface. You could, in 
theory, control a bank of MIDI synthesisers 
and sound modules with Deluxe Music and 1 
use the Amiga as a sort of sample replay 
module. Many musicians (Renegade 
SoundWave and. supposedly. Paula Abdul) 
use the Amiga as a sound sampler. OK. BO 
the sound quality isn't quite up to Fanlight 
standards, hut many musicians prefer the 
griltiness' of Amiga samples. 

This package is something of a 

departure from the SnundTrcuker clones 
and MIDI sequencers that have become 

the standard composition tools for Amiga 

musicians. It uses a conventional score 
notation-based approach that even "real* 
musicians should be able to understand. 
Music is displayed in the same format as 
traditional sheet music, and you can even 
print out vour scores. There is a lot more 
to creating sheet music than simply plonk- 
ing notes down on to a stave, but even 
professional score writers should find that 
Deluxe Music 2 has everything they need to 
create good-looking sheet music. 



The Deluxe Mush 2 si ieen is spin into dure 
windows, the largest of which holds your 
music in scon- lonn.it The Score window 
is undoubtedly the heart of the system 

since you can cuter music simply bv drop- 
ping' notes into the stave. What's more, 
von can have several scores open at anv 
one time (each with its own window) and 

cut and paste sections ol music back and 

forth between scores. 

Next to the Score window is the I'ools 
window, which gives vou instant access to a 

selection of common!) used score- editing 

tools I he window is split into two parts - 
at the- top are six gadgets that allow you to 
select notes, remove them, insert new 
notes, beam notes', adjust the loudness of 
individual groups of notes and add lyrics 
directly on to the sheet Clicking on any 
one ol these gadgets will bring up a sub- 
menu fol precise control over the tool in 



(in 



'I 



CStion. Beneath these are line 



H OI1S 



which look like tape transport controls. 
They allow von to plav the whole score. 
pla\ just a bar or stop plav. 

Running along the bottom of the 
screen is a window containing a piano key- 
board. If you're not too hot at leading 

music (who remembers Every Good Boy 

Deserves Favour and PACE from music 
classes'-), vou can enter notes l>\ clicking 
on the appropriate- ke\ with the mouse. 
On pl.nbac k, Deluxe Music 'plays' the music 
cm the keyboard too, 



Checking the score - how to get your sounds on the screen 






is*. 





1 Deluxe Music has a default set-up that 
gives you two staves to work on - 'treble' 
and 'bass' - but you can add more manually 
by using the 'Stave Settings' requester. Just 
click on 'Add Staff' for each extra one that 
you require. 



2 Once you have all the staves you need, 
you can fine-tune them to suit your own 
needs. Deluxe Music 2 allows you to apply a 
both a time- and a key-signature to your 
staves and you can change a particular staff's 
'clef to treble, bass, alto or tenor. 



3 Once you're happy with your score set-up, 
you can start entering notes. There are 
three ways of doing this: (a) record them in 
step time from a MIDI keyboard (b) click on 
the keys of the on-screen keyboard or (c) 
place them right on the staff with the mouse.

Music can be entered into a wore in ihrce 
ways. If you own a MIDI keyboard, you ran 
enter musk dim tly on to a stave simply \ty 
pressing the keys. Don't get too excited 
though - you can't enter performance 
data in real time. Karh lime you wish to 
enter a note ol a different duration, you 
have to change the note type. 

If you don't own a MIDI keyl>oard, you 
can still enter note data \ry using the on- 
screen keyboard - set the note type that 
you wish to enter, click on ihe keys and 
/V/uxc Music will automatically stream the 
note data directly onto the stave. There is 
even a 'Chords* option hut heai in mind 
(hat unless you own an external sound 
module, the* uuuiIk-i of sounds that you 
can play at once is severely limited by the 
Amiga's own sound hardware. Having said 
that, the program does seem to automati- 
cally combine chords through a single 
sound channel which is very clever indeed. 

Km ally, notes can Ik* entered by dto|>

Score carting is pretty compre- 
hensive loo. At its simplest level, you can 
remove individual notes by clicking on the 
offending note and then selecting 'Cut*

musicians (writing music in score formal 
takes considerably longer than it does with

5 In order to tidy up your score, Deluxe Music 2 
allows you to 'beam' notes. Beaming a group 
of notes together indicates that they belong to 
the same beat of the bar. Selected notes can also 
be tied or have characteristics such as their pitch 
and timing altered. 



6 Deluxe Music 2 provides a comprehensive set 
of 'cut and paste' tools that allow you to 
select a section of music and transfer it to 
another part of the sheet. The program's paste 
facility will adjust the positions of notes if they 
are transferred to a stave of a different clef.

Deluxe Music 2. 



The Deluxe Music manual is thick 
and full of detail. 

ACCESSIBILITY • • I 

Very simple to get into, even if you 
don't know quavers from minims. 

FEATURES 

The lack of a real-time MIDI input 
is a shame. 

VALUE 

Like all Deluxe products, this one is 
very sensibly priced. 



I VERDICT 

- This update of a 1987 
original has been a 
long time coming, but 
it was worth waiting 
for... EA have come up 
with the ideal compan- 
ion to a sequencer - it 
is a real joy to use. "

MINI GEN PRO 







^ 




Would you like to make a start in video titling? 
Jason Holborn has a gadget that could help... 



IF YOU'RE SOMETHING ..fan 

Aini^i vrlri.m. then ( Ii.iih cs .ire the 
MiniCiEN name rin^s .t Ix-ll in two. I In- 
original was created over six years ago 1>\ .1 
Company called Applied Systems and 
Peripherals (ASAP 10 iia friends) and was 
ihe first 'truly affordable' (cheap!) genlock 
(o Ik* launched lor die Amiga. 

Back then, genlocks cost an arm and a 
leg, hut alter MiniOF.N came a whole new 
generation of low-cost video devices 
including genlocks and chrouwkevs and. 
.is often seems to hap|K a n with ground- 
breaking ideas, MiniCiKN was quickly 
overtaken h\ the inui.ilois 1h.1i followed il 

Although ASAP are no longer with us. 
the MiniGKN has now been taken up hy 
Isila Marketing, a new name on the Amiga 
scene. \ol onh have I ol;i i.ikcn 00 the 
original MiniGKN (see '(Unlocking loi 
£5()!" below), but they've also launched a 
brand-new version dial aims to sn.iu h luck 
the budget genlock throne that once 
belonged exclusively to MiniGEN. 

The heavily updated IffiniGEN Pro 

has signifiranlh morr fraiurrs and vci il 
sells for onl\ .1 \vw |mmiiuI\ more lh.ui ihr 



By no means new on 
the Amiga scene, this 
ts the MiniGEN in its 
latest incarnation- 



GENLOCKING FOR £50! 

If even a so-called budget' 
genlock such as MiniGEN Pro is 
beyond your pocket then Lola 
have something to offer you. 




A genlock for just £50? The origi- 
nal MiniGEN Is now a bargain. 



For little more than the price 
of two Amiga games, Lola will 
gladly sell you the original 
MiniGEN. Although it lacks 
many of the features to be 
found in its big brother (RGB 
passthru, fade controls and so 
on), MiniGEN still represents a 
great choice for the first-time 
videophile especially at such a 
low price. 

Image quality isn't great 
and the unit does suffer from 
the lack of an RGB passthru, 
but no one can doubt that it 
still represents great value for 
money. Check it out. 



launch price of the original MiniGKN. 
Isn't progress wonderful! 

For your £150 von gel ;i ven M\lish 
looking genlock thai connects to the 
Amiga's ROB video port via a standard 
L'iVpin video cable, which is included. As a 
result. MiniCiEN Pro can be positioned 
next to your Amiga keyboard, giving vou 
quick and easy access to its main COIItrob 
without having to perform painful voga- 
like contortions. 

The MiniGKN Pro casing is made ■■! 
solid metal although it feels rather lighi. 
Though the casing is onh slighth mii.iIIci 
than a piece of A4 paper, the actual gen- 
lock circuit Itoard is ininist ule 

Getting MiniGKN Pro up and running 
is ven simple indeed. All you need to do is 
connect a standard composite video signal 
to the 'Video In* socket using an) video 
lead terminated with a BN(. socket (it's 
nice to see Kola haven't gone lor lack) 
Phono* connectors) and then feed the 
output (Video Out) into either a second 
video deck or a preview monitor. 

Sadly MiniGEN Pro can't handle 
SATIS video signals, but OTIC feature in its 
la\oui is ihr addition of Wi KGB video 
passthru, something thai was sadly lacking 
from the original. 

As you'd expect from a genlock of this 
price. MiniGKN Pro does include the now 

obligatory fade/dissolve controller which 

allows you to perform ven profevsioual- 
looking fades simply bv adjusting a slidei 
control on the genlock fascia. This fader 
woiks in all of the genlock's three modes, 
although vou'll gel different results in 
each mode. 

The three modes on offer arc 

Graphics Only, Keyed Video (Amiga 

graphics owrlayed onto a video signal) 
and Video Only. Performing a fade in 
Keved mode will cause the overlayed 
graphics to fade in and out. hut in other 
modes the entire picture will fade to hhu k. 

MiniGEN Pro is a vast improvement 
Over the original, hut I can't help thinking 
that the market has moved on just too 
much to make this latest release anything 
other than average. Sure it's (heap, hut 
then so are RoeTee's excellent range of 
genlocks - the RocGen RG300C. for exam- 
ple, can be picked up for under £100 these 
davs and even the RocGen Plus costs alxiut 
the same as MiniGKN Pro. 

In performance there's ven little t « ► 
separate Rix(*-n Plus from MiniGKN Pro, 
hut I still think that I'd plump for the 
RocTee unit simply because of its higher 
quality of design and manufacture. 

MiniGKN Pro's ladei control is more 
positive in use-, hut the Roc Tec unit also 
ofTers the addc-d hem-lit ol compatibility 
with RoeTee's astonishingly good RocKey 
chroma-ke\ svslem. Unless you have some 
strange hatred for RocTee products, 
MiniGKN Pro is probably the second Imsi 
in this market. . O

Everything you need to know (and 
more) is there in clear English. 

ACCESSIBILITY • • • i 

Its simplicity certainly makes it a 
very easy genlock to use. 

FEATURES 

Nothing that can't be found on a

VALUE 

It's cheap, but there are cheaper 
models that offer similar facilities. 



VERDICT 

- Perhaps the market 
has moved on a little 
too much to make this 
latest release more 
than average. In 
performance there's 
very little to separate 
MiniGEN Pro from its 
rival, RocGen Plus **

uses what's called a 'modular* method to 
control am \ < K 01 i amcordei connected 
to it. It supports the lour most common 

methods of controlling video hardware - 
infa-red. Panasonic 5-pin edit cable, two

VideoPilot 




Do you want to be the next Spielberg? Here's how to remake Jurassic Park 
with nothing more than an Amiga, your pet tortoise and V3i's new home video 
editing system, will Jason Holborn get a PC rating? 



The vast majoim of control svstems used 

by modern VHS. S-VHS. 8mm and Hi-8 
camcorders and video recorders are in one 
of those lour formats, so chances are the 
\ideo hardware you already own will he 
compatible with VideoPilot. 

In addition, a number of professional- 
qualitv B\X" and I -Malic decks can 
be used too. providing these fea- 
ture a 35-pin parallel connector. 
As always, check with VSi before 
taking the plunge - even if the 
\ideo dc< ks that you own are not 
listed bv the VideoPilot software, the 
chances are vou can use another driver. 

The heart of the VideoPilot system is a 
control unit connected to the Amiga via 
the serial port. It sits in front of your 
Amiga, and is based on a professional 
video editing deck, so it includes all the 
controls sou could want to search back- 
wards and forwards through video footage. 
and assign edit points without controlling 
the video d<( ks manually. 

Silling in the centre ol the VideoPilot 
fascia is a jog/ shuffle controller that allows 
\oii to step through a paused video with 
almost single-frame accurat v. 

Obvious!) you're going to need a 
source video deck capable ol handling 
Single-frame jogging and even then, the 
accuracy of frame jogs depends upon the 
qualm ol VOW source V(!R'sjog facilitv. In 
many respects, the weak link in VideoPilot 
is not the hardware, but the video decks 
that you can use with it - if VOU use a naff 
decks, then expect naff results. 

The rear of the VideoPilot control unit 
features a bewildering array of connections. 
Unfile Ck>ld Disk's Video Director. 
VideoPilot can connect up to four deck* 
simultaneously, so if you wish to compile 
footage that's -plead across several tapes.

1 Before you can start editing your videos, 
you must first tell VideoPilot what type 
of video decks you wish to use as source and 
destination decks. VideoPilot supports a 
whole range of different video recorder 
standards including infa-red controllers. 
Sony 'LANC and the JVC 3.5mm mini-jack. 
If you're lucky enough to own an ICC 
compatible BVU/U-Matic decks, these too can 
be used simply by connecting them to 
VideoPilot's 33-pin parallel connector.

2 If you're not quite sure whether the deck 
that you're using is fully compatible 
with the control system that you've selected, 
VideoPilot will allow you to test it just to 
make sure. All you have to do is to press the 
appropriate buttons on the VideoPilot hard- 
ware and the video deck should respond to 
whichever function you're testing, though it 
won't actually set the video deck going. 
If the deck doesn't respond, then you know 
something is wrong.

3 Up to four different video decks can be 
connected to VideoPilot at the same time, 
which means that you can extract video 
footage from three different source tapes 
simultaneously (the other deck is, naturally, 
the 'destination', for recording to). 
Even with just a single deck, multiple source 
tapes can still be used - when you come to 
assemble your production, VideoPilot will 
simply prompt you to insert the correct 
source tape.

the rear panel of the VideoPilot hardware may look like something out of 
Sttr Tr»k, but it's this complexity that gives VideoPilot its impressive 
level of VCR and camcorder compatibility. 



VideoPilot gives yon the option of having 

three source tapes on-line simultaneously. 
In addition, it also provides an additional 
set of outputs lor previewing your produc- 
iion on a separate monitor. 

VideoPilol t an Ik- used in a number of 
ways. II you own nothing more than .111 
Amiga and .1 couple of compatible- video 
de< ks. then it will function as a stand-alone 

video editor. 

To get the most from VideoPilot. how- 
ever, a genlock is .1 nnist. With a gcnloi k 
connected, VOW can add titles to vom 
movies using VideoPilot s on-line tiller. 

Koi professional users, VideoPilot can 

handle audio/video processors (small 
black boxes that provide colour correction 
and image enhancement) and even (nil 
blown audio/video mixing desks (for cross 

lading between video soinces) suih as 
Panasonic's AVK. r > or MX 10. 

VideoPilot cannot directly control 
video mixers, bill \"M ate soon to release 
an add-on that will enable von to set up

different facts about each video deck 
connected 10 the VideoPilot control unit - 
the type of control system to be used (Sony 
TANCJVC 3.5mm or Infa-red etc), the 
tvpe ol cable to be used (the Sony 'I.ANC 
Standard, for example, uses both 5-pin 
mini-DIN and 2.5mm stereo jack connec- 
tors) and lastly, the type of time code 
svstem to be used. 

Time code is verv. verv important to 
VideoPilol. Most video decks and cam- 
corders can read and write a time code 
signal which allows several video devices to 
be synchronised precisely. VideoPilot 
offers a variety of different time code for- 
mats including V1TC (Vertical lnler\-al 
Time (.ode). RCTC (Rewritcable 
Consumer Time Code) and LTC (Lineal 
Time Code). 

Even if vour video deck doesn't offer 
one of these time codes, any standard 
stereo video deck can be modified bv X'M 
to use Linear Time Code. What's more 
the great thing about LTC is that it can be 
dubbed directly on to existing video 
footage without having to transfer the 



Setting up VideoPilot isn't simply a 
mallei of connecting together all die

4 Unless your camcorder or video recorder 
has already 'striped' a tape with a time 
code that VideoPilot can read, the next step is 
to lay down an LTC time-code track on to the 
source. LTC can only be used with video decks 
capable of recording a stereo audio signal - 
even then, some decks need to be modified to 
take advantage of this feature. LTC is non- 
destructive, so it can be 'dubbed' on to an exist- 
ing tape without having to transfer the tape's 
contents to a separate video tape. 



5 If you are lucky enough to own a video deck 
that offers more features than the infa-red 
control setup provided by VideoPilot and yet 
you wish to use an infra-red system rather than 
a cable, you can extend VideoPilot's knowledge 
of your video deck by 'teaching' it how to 
control your deck. All you have to do is to point 
the deck's remote control unit at VideoPilot's 
infa-red box and press the appropriate button, 
and VideoPilot will 'sample* the infra-red signal 
into memory.

Like Gold Disk's Video Director. VideoPilot 
enables you to 'teach' its infa-red controller 
how to control your video deck. 

verv similar to the Teach' lacilitv offered 
hv (iold Disk'*. Video Dim tOI , 

With VideoPilot now configured,

This isn't as dilli< till a task as 11 sounds 
- because 1 It is non-destructive, vou tan

What's more, a tape can be 'striped' 
complete with its own identification 

number, so VideoPilol will he able to 

disliiujuish between dilleieul tapis simplv 

by reading the tape's identification 

number from its tun*' code signal. 

With your source tapes prepared, vou 
can now gel slatted with vour edits. The 

VideoPilot software presents vou with what 
is known in the video industry as an 'edit 
decision list' (although VideoPilol tails it a 

'Shot list). On this list, vou detail one by 
one the 'shots' 1 li.it make up vour video. 

A shot is simplv a continuous sequent e 
of video lot Mage that runs for anything 
from just a lew Frames i»> several minutes. 
Each shot has associated with it a time- 
code Stan mu\ Stop time that specifies 
where on the souk*' tape the shot can be 
found and how long it should run. 

Adding a clip is done using a .tech- 
nique that VideoPilol calls 'marking' - so 

tailed because it envorves marking the sum 

and end point of the shot using the 
Return' button on the VideoPilol control 
unit. This can Im- done eithei "on the llv" -

of the shot and then tap it again to mark

typing in a new time-* ode reading. 

VideoPilot's jog controller comes in 

particularly handv here since vou can 
single-step through a length ol It Milage and 
mark the exaci frame that vou wain. 
A good example ol this is when you need 
to mark a section ol footage thai starts 01

Once a series of 'shoLs' has been defined, 
vf.ni ran rearrange them to vonr heart's 
lonlcni and even preview ihe pioduc lion 
.ii any lime lo see how its coming along. 

VldcoPilol also offers 'special effects' 
that can l»e used to add lhai bit ol exlra 

dazzle to your video productions. These 

include still-frame display, external caption 
insert (onlv for systems with dedicated 
titling hardware), slow motion replay 
(Som VHOO only). A/B roll (rrossfading 
Ix-tween two video signals using a video 
mixer) and genlock lilies or graphics. 

Ihe latter of these is particular!) useful 

ii you're lucky enough to own .i second 

Amiga since you can connect the video 
OUlpui from the second machine to 
VideoPiloi. You could, for example, use 
the second Amiga to display lilies pro- 
duced by a dedicated video lillei (Srata, 
for example) or even 24-bit animations' 

VideoPiloi does have a reasonably 
immkI video litter built in. It's not in the 
same league .is ,i dedicated pai k.tge such 
as Stalti. but il can produce scroll, loll ami 
page-based tides from a choice ol up lo 

four fonts in lour different colours. 

Ihe VideoPiloi tiller uses standard 
Amiga bitmapped and Workbench 2.0 out- 
line louts, so you can change die fonts lo 
suit yourself. V3i claim thai ihe tiller will 
be enhanced soon, so let's hope ihev take 
advantage ol the new AGA chip sel. An 
upgrade is certainly needed - al the 
moment, the tiller will not work on an 
Amiga 12(H) or 40(H) unless you sele* l ihe 
original chip sel from the "Bool' menu. 

Finally, once all your shots have been 
compiled and vou're happy wiib the How 
o! your video production, all thai is lefi is 
lo assemble your shots into ihe finished 
mastei tape. This is dead easy - all you do 
is select Assemble' from the pull flown 
menus and VideoPiloi jumps backwards 
and forwards through your source tapes. 
laying down your shots lo die destination 
deck while you twiddle your thumbs. 

Ii void video produi lion uses more 

than one source tape and you only have 
one source deck connected. VideoPiloi will 
ball assembly (with a beep noise) and 
piompl sou lo insert the appropriate tape. 
When you have, on it goes. 



Built into VideoPiloi 
is a quick and easy 
video title generator 
that allows you to 
create titles using 
any standard Amiga 
bitmapped font. It's 
no competition for 
Scala, but for simple 
stuff it's ideal. 



VideoPilot works by 
allowing you to 
define a series of 
'shots', each of which 
labels a single 
sequence of video 
footage on any one 
of several source 
tapes. Defining a shot 
is simply a matter of 
starting your source 
tape and then mark- 
ing the start and end 
points by pressing 
the 'Return' key on 
the control unit. 



One particularly nice feature is thai 
VideoPiloi allows \<>u 10 build up a video 
production gradualh. so you don't have to 
enter all ihe 'shots 1 for a massive epic in 
one go. Instead, you i an build the finished 
thing from shoii sequent es ol shots. 

The main criticism levelled at the 

oi iginal VideoPiloi V320 was that it did noi 

allow you to perform 'insert editing' on an 
existing mastei tape, bul V3i have 
addressed ibis with the \".VMK 

If you need to replace a section of 
video footage with a new shot, all you have- 
to do is |o tell il where on die master tape 
die iicu sequence is to be inserted, where 
on die source tape the lieu sequence can 
be found and VideoPiloi will do the rest. 
Ihe new shot has to be exactly die same 

* 

length, however - if il is short, you'll see a 
noticeable 'glitch' on your mastei tape. 

The V3i VideoPilot may not Ik- the 
cheapest video add-on foi the Amiga* but 

il's one of ihe most powerful and certainly 
one of the most useful. 

If you use your Amiga for desktop 
video and vou need to be able to edil video 
footage down into more manageable 
morsels, then vou won't go lar wrong with 
this system. OK. so there are cheaper alter- 
natives available ((hiIcI Disk's Video 
Director, for example, al £149) but the 

VideoPilot produces virtualb frame- 
accurate cuts with absoluieh no glitches. 

What's more, ils modular design 
means dial it's a system thai will grow with 
you - if. (or example, vou decide to 
upgrade your video decks at some time in 
the future, you're virtually guaranteed that 
VideoPiloi will work with youi new hard- 

ware without moduli ation. 

The inclusion ol an ICC bus is ,i great 
addition too now thai more and more 
domestic and professional video decks arc 
starting lo suppoii tins relatively new stan- 
dard. When ICC does become established 
fully, VideoPilot will be able to direcUv 

* * 

control a whole host of new wave video 
hardware including mixing desks and pet- 
haps even Amiga genlot ks! 

In conclusion dun, VideoPilot earns 
ils Format ( .old award with living colours. 
It's a solidly built piece of hardware-

Millennium's Toby Simpson 
looks at an interactive 
disassembler that claims to be 
fast, powerful and easy to use. 

IF YOU'RE LEARNING to pro 

gram the \inigu in assembler, then vou'll 
probably be familiar with the concept <>t 
disassemblers; basicalrj ihey lake the 
binary instructions om "I ;i computer's 

memon .ind nun them into thru assembl\ 

language equivalents, 

Resoune i> .1 powerful disassembler. 

and it differs Irom it^ < <>mpelilors in thai it 
tan pittance extremely comprehensive list- 
ings Ircuu machine code. Unlike a 
conventional disassembler, it can change 
lots of the strange numbers, such as 
addresses, to their textual equivalents, 

making the result easier u» follow and 
understand. You can even reassemble the 
results il you wish, having altered thent 
accordingly. Rrwurcc works with the entire 

file at one go, which means it's very mem- 
ory hungry, so il von are produi ing a tullv 
'resourced' disassembt) ol a ISKfile, MOK 
mav lx* required. As well as disassembling 
files off disk. Resource can also read disk 
blocks directly off floppy, and disassemble 
directlv Irom memorv. 

lusourre's menus look daunting at first. 
but the initial (ask I set it was to turn hack 
into assemble' 1 a simple program I wrote vears 
ago. This look onlv a couple of minutes! 

Once you have loaded the file to be 

disassembled Rajoun/ works l« scanning an 

entire file and deciphering what is data, 
and what is code. Bv selecting 'Disassemble' 
from the project menu von can instruct 
Rnourre to guess data types and make- it 
easiet to read. If you're a competent 
assembly language programmer, vou will 
then see .i < all i<> < >penl Ibr.m i<> open the 
Amiga's Intuition library. You can then 
instruct R?\OUttt to show ( >penl. Hilary on 
screen rather than the less informative 
machine code Instruction - (-$228,a6). It 
then stoics the Intuition library base at the 
location lb 1-0(100004, 

Htsouret can refer to this as JntBase, 

and it then changes even' reference in the 
program. It's ihen possible to change everv 




This Is the raw disassembled code. As you can see, it's not particularly 
readable, unless you happen to know your Amiga inside out. 



'." • 







A little bit of labelling and processing produces a result which is much 
more readable by mere mortals. None of those nasty addresses herel 



call to the luliiition library to iis proper 
name. In the example illustrated here, 

there is one call and its to 'Screen- 
ToFront*. With a little simple tidying the 
results can Ih* seen in the bottom pit lure. 

Ibis example onlv took a little over 
two minutes to do. and I had not even 

read past the 'Getting Started' section of 

the manual, which is a good sign. 

What this utility ian*i do. however, is 
ret reate die comments or the lalx*l names 

■ Resource is a powerful disassembler, and it differs 
from its competitors in that it can produce extremely 
comprehensive listings from machine code. m 

ol the original program (but if a program 
was compiled with Debug information, 
some bits might lx- able to be recovered). 
Voil will still have tO ligtue out what does 
what and cieate label names yourself, 
though fteouKf does make this process easy. 

Here is a disassembler that's bang tip 
to date - it can operate in bodi the new 
and old Motorola 68000 syntax (though 
personally. I tend 10 switch back to tin- old 
syntax since its the onlv one I understand). 



DON'T BE NAUGHTY... 

You can do some pretty amazing things with Resource, and in 
case you have not already realised, it provides you with a way of 
reverse engineering other people's programs and seeing how 
they work; maybe even altering them, and recreating them at a 
later date. This is illegal in most cases, and if you produce fur- 
ther altered copies of a copyrighted program by using Resource. 
this is piracy. 

A lot of commercial applications (word processors and so 
on) come with licence agreements that forbid you to disassem- 
ble them. Programs like Resource are serious applications, and 
are designed for Amiga developers to help them make the most 
of their development environment and should not be misused. 



Although this program can 

in theory run in 512K, it's not really rec- 
ommended. You (.mi do anything ol am 
use with Resource unless you've got more 

1I1. in 1Mb. When I was using the program I 

couldn't disassemble a program ol MOK 
\wt\\ 5Mb ol free last RAM. which just goes 

10 show how much memory this program 
Can use. Although di I fin ill lo use at liisi, 
vou soon net used to it. It's a powerful 

development tool, and if you arc serious 

about programming the Amiga in any lan- 
guage, but particularly assembler, Resource 
will Ik- very useful for you. O

Matt black scanning heads seem to be all the 
rage this season. Coming soon to a catwalk 
near you is the Migraph Colourburst model. 

YOU MAY GET a certain feeling of 

dcja vu when looking at ilu- photo ol this 
scaiuu'i. Inn km availed dial it's mn the 

same product as the AlfaColoi scanner 
reviewed in issue 50. Although the scan- 
ning head itself is the same malt black 
model, every oiher aspect of the scanner 
has changed. 

The scanner head plugs into an inter- 
face box. which then plugs into the 
parallel port ol your Amiga. I'owei lot the 
scanner is supplied by an external power 
supply which leeds into the interface box. 
The scanner comes with two programs 
CoIourKit (a scanning and drawing pro 
gram) and Migraph OCR Jr (an Optical 
Character Recognition program). AN" 
included, is a rather useful metal scanning 
guide, which ensures that your scanner 
stavs on .1 straight line. 

One of the better features of the 
AllaColor is the inclusion of a switcher so 
you could Hick between using the scanner 
and printer without doing any unplugging. 
Unfortunately, this has not been carried 
through to this model, so if you want to 
print out your results, you will need to 
unplug the scanner and plug in the printei 

The scanning software is 

very good, and produces excellent results 
in the new A(1A modes. Once the scan has 
been completed, the program processes 
the data and produces the final image. 
This can be in anything from 'J colours to 
HAM-8. at a resolution of up to 400 dots 
per inch (dpi). However, the high qualit\ 
colour modes ate limited to a maximum ol 
'Jim dpi. [here is also one serious bug in 
the progtam see 'hideous nast\ bugs',

Micrograph 
Colorburst 





Richard Baguley has found a hand scanner 
that pushes the new ACA chips to the limit. 
So if you need colour images in your DTP 
documents, this could be the thing... 




Given a bit ol practice 
and a steady hand, 
you can produce 
some very high qual- 
ity scans with the 
Colourburst scanner. 



Greyscale images 
with 64 shades of 
grey can be produced 
at up to 400 dots per 
inch with the 
Color-Burst scanner. 



As you can see Iiom the images on this 
page, this scanner can produce some 
excellent results. These are much better 
(ban the Alfascan. due to the much supe- 
rior image processing software. However, 
the image quality depends on the quality 
of the photo being scanned. If you're ir\- 
ing to scan a vcrv dark photo 01 something 
out of a newspaper vou're not going to gel 
a good result. 

The scanned images are not quite up 
to the standard of a flatbed scanner such 
as the Kpson GT-lftOO (AFM - 97 per cent). 
This scannei is 1100 more expensive than 
the AllaColor, but the image quality is bet- 
ter, with stronger colours and higher 
contrast. There's none of the washed out' 
look to images that often goes with scan- 
ners of this type. II you can afford an extra 
£100, it's well worth it. The other obvious 
Competition, the Power colour hand scan- 
ner is £60 cheaper, hut it's still not (at the 
time of writing) AGA compatible.

HIDEOUS NASTY BUGS 

The current version of the CoIourKit software (1.31) has some 
rather nasty bugs. Foremost amongst these is a problem with 
the pallete on greyscale grabs. Files saved in the same screen 
format (resolution, number of colours, etcetera) as they have 
been viewed in have corrupted palletes which mean that your 
images come out all black or white. Migraph have promised 
an upgraded version within two months which will get 
around this, but In the meantime, if the screen and save for- 
mats are different images will be saved correctly.

Scanning is fairly fast, but the pro- 
cessing the scan takes a fair time. 

MANUAL 

Adequate, with separate manuals 
for the scanner and OCR software. 

ACCESSIBILITY 

The occasional glitch, such as not 
saving HAM-8 images correctly. 

FEATURES 

Very high quality images, and a 
metal scanning guide. 

VALUE I 

It isn't cheap, but the images are 
of extremely high quality. 



VERDICT 

m Capable of producing 
excellent results, 
although the bugs in 
the software are 
irritiating. Once these 
are fixed, it will be a 
serious force to be 
reckoned with.**

Ricoh, have used their expertise to produce a 'first' in laser printers, the 
LP1200 with FLASH ROM. HP LaserJet ///™ compatible, the LP1200 
employs industry proven laser technology which, unlike LED printers. 
uses a laser light source to produce the most accurate and intense 
printed images at a range of pnnt resolutions up to 400dpi. A fast 
efficient processor and engine, plus a straight paper path design 
allows printing at a full 6 pages per minute. The 2Mb RAM version 
prints a full A4 page of text or graphics at 300dpi. Using standard 
resident fonts and the alternate controller firmware supplied, it 
can also print an A4 page of text or A5 page of graphics at 
400dpi and, using the Windows driver supplied, 
an A4 page of text 
at 400dpi from f*j 
Windows 3.1. .*'■

TOP TRAY (OPTIONAL EXTRA) 

The 4Mb RAM version can print a 

full A4 page of graphics at 400 dpi and makes 

full use of the LP1200's 400 dpi printing capabilities, such 

as using Microsoft Windows fonts. Unique additional standard 

features include FLASH ROM future proof technology and LAYOUT - a 

powerful document description language. The LP1200's unique internal 

FLASH ROM. which holds the pnnter controller firmware, can easily be 

updated as new developments in technology occur. This protects the 

investment you make In buying a Ricoh LP1200. Other manufacturers 

would require you to buy a new printer! Internal FLASH ROM and industry 

standard FLASH ROM PCMCIA cards can also be used to permanently 

store fonts, macros, graphics and extra 

emulations. Again, unlike the competition, 

the LP1200 includes LAYOUT, a powerful 

and intuitive document descnption 

language as standard. This offers unique 

opportunities to develop custom made 

pnnting systems. Forms and document 

templates can be designed complete with 

logos and stored electronically in the 

LP1200's FLASH ROM, alleviating the need 

tor pre-pnnted forms! 

The LP1200 comes with a 100 sheet A4 
paper tray as standard. An optional 
universal feeder automatically feeds up to 
150 sheets of paper (up to 169gsm), 15 
envelopes, transparencies and labels.

DF.M data, fractals, or painted colout 
maps. DEM stands foi Digital Elevation 



Unlike rival Vista Pro, 
Scenery Animator c*n 
include any object 
directly within the 
landscape model. 
Thi$ can be sized, 
rotated and 
animated. The result 
is not as good as in a 
full 3D modelling and 
animation system like 
Rp*l3D or Imagine (no 
shadows or smooth- 
ing), but in a 
landscape 'fly-past' 
the effect is stunning.

IThe landscape can be a DEM data file or a 
fractal random image controlled from this 
panel. Mountain height and seed can be 
entered. Use the same seed for each, and any 
number of landscape blocks can be appended 
next to each other with edge locations. 



2 A whole range of features can be applied 
to the landscape. You can make it snow, 
plug for a bit of vegetation cover, trees, or 
clouds, and if you want to see some water, 
throw in a few lakes. Here, the various 
features of the sky are controlled. 



3 Objects are loaded into a list of available 
models using the Project menu. Once on 
that list an object can be placed on the map 
screen, sized and rotated, given direction and 
pitch for animation. The map can be zoomed 
in/out or a position framed to fill the screen.

Robot 



Every decent sci-fi film has its 

token robot character, and 

now Richard Baguley has 

found a kit that can turn the 

Amiga into your very own 

Robbie the Robot. 




ROBOT ARM 



IF YOU WERE to rhcck ihe produc- 
tion line of any big factory, one <»f the firsi 

things you would lx- likcl) i me across 

is a robot. And ihat's be* ausc behind even 
good robot there's a toinputer. Die com- 
puter iH'hind Swilchsoft's new robot kit 
could bt- your Amiga. The kit contains .(II 
the parts vou need to build voui own rohoi 
that can pick up objects, move them 
around, and put them somewhere else. 
This doesn't sound much, but it's the basis 
of all robots: a car building robol iua\ Ik- .i 

little more complex, but it shares ihe same 

loin rpts .i-. this kit. 

The first thing thai strikes you is the 
number of bits, boxes, cogs and lots ol 
string that come with it. It's certainly not A 
simple kit, and unfortunately the instruc- 
tions don't help. All of the information 
you need is on the two sides ol ait \1 
sheet, but it's not very well written, and the 
illustrations (which are vital fbl .i product 
like this! .ue ralhei lew and t.u between - 
those that are theie aien't particular!) 
well done. This makes the prot CSS of build- 
ing the arm more difficult, and while 
building the review model. I have had to 
strip the arm down and start again several 
times eithet IncaUSC I've put something in 
the wrong wa\ round. 01 loigotten to put 

in a washer. 

The arm is controlled through the 
Input/Output port (available separately), 
which plugs into the parallel and joystick 
ports. Power for the twit motors on the 
arm is supplied bv a 9\' mains supply. 




Designed by Switchsoft, controlled by your Amiga, the robot arm will 
drive you mad as you try to fathom the instructions. 

included with the kit. One of these drives 
one of four sets ol < ogs which reel in or let 
out the siring attached to the various parts 
ol the arm (inner arm. outei arm. grabber 
and rotation), while the other rotates a

parts that you need to build a robot... the arm is

central spindle which (booses that ol the 
cog sets is being used. It sounds complex, 
but it works - though it takes a lair amount 
of lime and fiddling to get the tog settings 
in the right position. 



And this is it in input 
mode, where you can 
check the state of any 
sensors attached. 




The arm can be controlled bv any pro- 
gramming language that can write 

information to the parallel port, and exam- 
ples lot AMOS, (.FA Basil, Amiga Basic 
and llisolt Basic are included on the disk 
that accompanies the I/O port As well as 
controlling the arm through this port, you 
<au receive signals back from other com* 
ponents. stub as pressure switches and 
light sensitive resistors. Given this and a bit 
of programming, vou could create a roliot 
i apable ot reading to its environment. 

This kit is a good iniioduction to any- 
one who is new to robotics, but it's let 
down bv the instructions - the manufai- 

turer obviously hasn't checked them 
through. llowe\et. with patience vou can 

build yourself a robol arm and leant some- 
thing about voui Amiga in the pun ess O

XT 



A complex bit of equipment that 
will take several hours to construct 



Badly written, and lacking the illus- 
trations vital (or construction. 

ACCESSIBILITY ••••• 

The instructions are not comprehen- 
sive enough. 

FEATURES • • • 

Complex to construct, but simple 
enough in use. 

VALUE 

Not cheap (total cost is £77.90), 
but a good introduction to robotics. 



VERDICT 



- Reminiscent of early 
Meccano sets, and very 
fiddly to construct, but 
good for learning and 
experimenting with the 
basics of robotics - 
if you can follow the 
manual that is! **

Art Department 






That perennial favourite Art Department Professional has just undergone another 
revision. Richard Baguley takes a look at version 2.3. 




The AdPro Twirl operator twists part of 
the image around its centre, giving a 
very weird image. 

ART DEPARTMENT 

PROFESSIONAL has a well 

deserved reputation as one of du- 
llest image processing programs on 
the Amiga, and has seen widcspicad 
professional use by people such as 
Foundation Imaging of Balislon 5 



lame. If vou've not come across il 
before, AdPtO can take images in a 
wide variety of formats and convert 
them into others and can apply a 
range of operations such as pixella- 
lion to the images. 

We reviewed AdPro version 1 wav 
back in issue 3b. and gave it a mark 
of H'y per cent. Since then, several 
new programs with similar image 
picKcssing power, such as GVP's 
hri/i^rlX and the PI) program 

Rmd24, have appeared, so what have 

ASDG done to keep their image pro- 
cessing crown? There have been no 
profound changes to the front end 
of AdPro. except for moving the 
Separate button ovei to an operator. 
Several new loader and saver mod- 
ules have been added, and many 
others have been updated. Support 
is provided toi using the framebullei 
of die Video Toaster, and vou can 



also pass images directly lo Dihixr 
Point IV AGA, Also included is a 
small patch program which upgrades 
DPaint IV AGA version 4.5 to version 
4.0. which is needed for the new- 
loader. Images can also be passed 
Straight to O/mlPaint. the excellent 
paint program that accompanies the 
OpalVision board. The anim loader 
and saver now supports the new 
ANIMH format, which gives belter 
compression ratios than the old 
ANIM5 format. 

A major addition is a program 
called Sentry, which can Ik* set up to 
keep an eye on a directory. When a 
new Hie appears in this directory, il 
can kick oil another program or 
ARFXX script. So. you could set up a 
script to convert new files and save 
them to a different directory. When 
used with ProCotitrol reviewed below, 
this can be incredibly useful.

2.1 and 2.2, £36 + £2 P&P

Pro 



If you're an avid AdPro 

user, ProControl can make 

your life a lot easier as 

Richard Baguley explains. 

THERE IS NO doubt thai An 

Depttrtment Professional is an incredi- 
bly powerful program, and that one 
of its most useful aspects is its com- 
prehensive ARexx interface, which 
gives you access to even 1 its pec I of 
image pun essing and conversion. 
However, unless vou really know 
TOUT way around both ARexx and

The front end of ProControl is definitely 
much friendlier than AdPro. 



AdPro. writing scripts to automate the 
use of Att Pro is an inciedibK complex 
process. Kven if vou do know about 
them, it Still involves a lot of debug- 
ging and rewriting. 

Into this technical breach steps 

ProControL It enables you to generate 

((implex ARexx scripts with DO more 
than a few mouse clicks. So. lor 
instance, if you regularly convert 
groups of files from 24-bit IFF to 
1 1AM. vou could set up a script to do 
it tor you. Alternatively, ProControl 
can co-operate witli the new Sentry 
in ili t\ supplied with AdPro, so it will 
run a script whenever a lile is copied 
into a given director)'. So. you could 
leave it unattended wailing for the 
next frame of a ray trace to finish. 

Scripts are built from the mOUSe- 
eonirolled front end. and all that's 
required to control them are a cou- 
ple of mouse dicks. So. if you wanted 
.i s ( iipi i<> load in .in IFF lile. blui il 
and ihen save it out as a |PK(i. vou 
would click on the IFF entry in the 
Loaders section, select the lile(s) 

required, click on the blur operator 
and select the parameters for the 
blurring. mu\ then click on the JPEG 
saver and set the save directory. That 

defines the script, so that all vou 



have to do is lo click on Process 
Script, and away it goes. Once you're 
happy with the script you can save it 
or combine it into an existing one. 

PntConlrol a\so enables you to call 
one script from another so that you 
can set up a library of common pro- 
cesses and call these from scripts 
designed for special purposes. Even' 
aspe* l ol \tlPtii * an be a< * essed b\ 
ihe script, including altering the 
dithering, palette changes and 
screen mode. These can also be 
added to the script, ami vou can 
even make ProControl and AdPro run 
in the background, so vou can get on 
with oilier things. This is the onl\ 
product of its type, and il certainly 
achieves its job of making il easier lo 
control AdPro through ARexx. 

II you deal regularly with huge 
numbers of files, or if you want to 
automate- image processing tasks so 
that they run unattended. ProControl 
is an excellent program, and it's cer- 
tainly an easy alternative to writing 
vour own ARexx script from scratch. 
The option to issue ARexx com- 
mands lo other programs would have 
been useful, and I hope the design- 
ers will consider including this in 
Inline versions. O

Europress have yet to release an Intuition extension 
for AMOS, but Jason Holborn has found an alternative... 



mer to create front-ends that share a 
striking resemblance to Woiklx-iic Ii L\ 

NCommand Isn'l a "proper' exten-

use it within your own programs, all 
vou need to load is a file which con- 
tains all the NC/immand routines in 
AMOS source code. 

I here are .» nuinhei <>l pros and 
cons lo this approach. Major downer 
is the NCommand file is rather large - 
ovei l'2'lK - so \our source files will 
Ik- big loo. What's more, because the 
NCommand routines are written in 
Assembler, their complexity makes 
them rather slow. Finally, NCommand 
makes vour programs look like the)

airn'l — NQmtmand still displays all its 
gadgets and lequesters on a standard 
hardware-level AMOS screen. On the 



plus side, however, coding them in 
AMOS makes ihem easy lo modify, so 

experienced programmers can change 

or even extend llietii if they wish. 

NCommand adds over ">0 new 
commands to ihe AMOS instruction 
set which allow you to incorporate 
bevelled Ixixes. buttons and both hor- 
izontal and vertical slide-bars, all of 
which are virtually indistinguishable 
from their Workbench 'J counter-

DSS8+ Digital 




SOUND STUDIO 



Maff Evans gets to grips with the upgraded sampling 
and tracking package from CVP. 



The D5S8+ hardware is very flash indeed, 
coming in a sleek, ultra-modem looking, 
clear plastic case- Nice touch. 

THE PROBLEM WITH buy 

inn serious package* for your Amiga 
is that before long there is nearly 
always an updated version. DSS84 is 
one such update, being a revamped 
version of (AT's previous pai kagc, 
DSSS. The first noticeable difteteiue 
between the two is that the new sam- 
pling cartridge conns in a mih//> 
clear-plastic case that is similar in 
stvle to the old TV modulator. 



The general appearance of the 
software is the same as the earlier 
version, but many of the Features 
have been streamlined and improved 
lo give greater performance and to 
work on the A1200 and A4000. The 
software has two main areas: sam- 
pling and tracking. The main screen 
is the sample list, where sounds can 
bo stored in memory and configured 
u » use as instruments on the tracker. 

By clicking on the relevant icon 
on the right hand panel, you enter 
an editing or recording screen. To 
sample a sound, von have to set the 
input levels, adjust the bias of the 
sampler (using an oscilloscope func- 
tion) and set the sample rate. Then 
you just click the monitor button to 
hear your source or hit the record 
button to put a sound in memory. 

All die usual tools have Ix'cn 
Included, such as copying, |>asting, 
and looping, most of which can 1m- 
accessed via the icon panel. One of 
Its features, that's not often found on 
samplers, is the ability to draw sec- 



tions of the waveform using the 
mouse, which is useful for ironing 
out spikes, dicks and glitches. Before 
vou can use .1 sound in the tracker, 
you have to select the (lnpy To Chip 
function from a menu, because only 
samples stored in (hip RAM can be 
played in the tracker. Then you just 
choose your sounds and play them 
into a pattern from the keyboard. 

DSS8+ is a flexible and poten- 
tially powerful system. The problem 
is that finding your way around is a 
little daunting and it's all too easy to 
select the wrong (unction and see 
sounds or inn ker data disappear. 
Another quibble is that the tempo 
can only be adjusted in large steps, 
so getting brcaklx'ats and loops to fit 
in time is next to impossible. 

The sampling quality at high 
rates is prettv gemd. but lower rates 
tend to hiss, and there are lots of 
useful editing functions. DSS8+ is a 
worthwhile package, but if you want 
to use die samples in songs, buv a 
separate tracker. O

TechnoSound Turbo II 

tO^WhtlJaaoeiAlnftiSRifmJ 



TT2's sample edit page Is well laid out. 
with everything clearly marked making 
waveform editing fast and worry free. 

ONE OF THE most popular 
sampling packages for the Amiga is 
New Dimensions' TechnoSound, 
whether in its original guise or in the 
revamped Turbo version. Now yet 
.mother version lias appeared with 

some significant changes on offer. 

Hie TechnoSound Turbo 2 car- 
tridge has been redesigned as a more 
solid, white box, but it's die software 



that has undergone the more radical 
updates. The progiam's stvle is com- 
pletely different. Gone .uv the 
potentially confusing icons placed on 
a prettv, but untie) essarilv colourful, 
background. Now \ou |iisi use simplv 
labelled buttons to control the 
recording and main editing func- 
tions. Other options are controlled 
in a series of pull-down menus. 

The waveform display has been 
Ktrath improved, giving readings of 
(he sample size, pointer positions 
and screen mode along with a vcrv 
clear waveform. The edit and loop 
points arc combined, which takes a 
bit of getting used to, but keeps 
things simple. To record a sample, 
you just set the sample rate using a 
pull-down menu option, adjust the 
volume on the sound source to get a 
good reading on the spectrum anal- 
vm-1 and « lie k on Rec <u«l 

The tracker section isn't as 
extensive as stand-alone programs, 
but it is flexible and fast. Unlike the 
DSSS+. the tracker is totally inte- 
grated into the program, so you can 
swap between the tracker and sample 
editing without losing data. 



The sound cjuahtv is very good 
and the higher rates give exception- 
ally clear samples. Again, the tracker 
is an ideas jotter rather than a seri- 
ous songwriting tool, but it's useful 
to test loops Atu\ sample edits Iwlorc 
leaving the sampling software. 
TechnoSound Turbo 2 has been 
vastly improved and for this price 
vou can't rcallv do much better. O

panel can now handle up to 64 tracks and 1,000 
blocks, compression of saved songs, several new 
effects for the sample editor and a new way of 
organising songs by putting them in sections. All 
functions can now be accessed through pull 
down menus as well. 

There are still a few bugs (such as the hard 
disk install script assuming your disk is called 
OHO: - which mine isn't), but he has cleaned up 
most of the known problems with earlier ver-

it's nice to see this Licenseware program written 
by Aaron McCormick. It's aimed al a voting audi-

nied by bright graphics and some excellent 
samples <>f slamming doors, hlurping fish and 
explosions. It's all ven well done, and should keep 



most young children occupied for a long time. 
I fowever. there are a couple of problems with the 
program. The instructions are rather wordy, and

MANAGER 

AIUCLIA PD FF872 & FF873 

Tool Manager is useful to have on your hard disk 
because it's designed to make accessing programs 
and sjK'cific files through the Workbench easier. Il 
allows you to add programs to the Workbench 
lools menu, so ili.u von t;in (Ink once on tin 
ii on of an IFF image, and then select 'Show' from 
the tools menu. You can also create Icons on the 
Workbench screen which represent programs. 
Double clicking on these will start the program, 
and dropping the icon of a data file on this will 
start the program oil with this file. It's also possi- 
ble to create what the program calls 'Docks', 
which are collections of buttons, each of which 
< .in start a program. The unusual thing about this 
is that you can open this screen within any pro- 
gram that supports the new Public Window stand- 
ard included with Workbench '2 and 3. So. you 
i ould get ,i menu within u program siu h .is Mttxt 
Paint, start off another program, and skip back to 
Dl'ainl without ever going to the Worklxmch screen. 
It is rather fiddly, and does require a lot of set- 
ting up to get the l>est use out of it. However, once 
you've got a set-up vou are happy with, it could 
save a large amount ol lime in repetitive opera- 
tions like examining and editing text and graphics 
files. If vou are making serious use ol your Amiga, 
(his < ould be extremely useful.

OBEROIU-2 

AIUCLIA PD FF880 

Obtrxm 2 is. apparently, a powerful object-orientated 
progiam language developed bv Niklaiis Wirth 
and Hanspetcr Mossenbock at the Swiss Federal 
Institute of Technology. Il's developed Irom the 
language Modula-2, and combines the object- 
orientated power ol languages like (."♦♦ and the 
noiationa! conventions ol I'asiai Or at least this is 
wli.it the documents claim. Anyway, any new 
Amiga language is worth investigating, and with a 
heritage like this makes il doubly interesting. 

1 his demo version is somewhat limited 




I get a warm feeling after slaying a Blue Yeek. The 
graphics may not b« much, but it's a big game. 

This was the prototype for games like Eye of 
the Beholder, in as much as the aim is to wan- 
der around a dungeon chopping up slime 
monsters, picking up treasure and making a 
nuisance of yourself. The dungeons are large 
and stocked with all manner of creepy crawlies. 
and are randomly generated at the start of 
each game. Somewhere in the dungeon lies the 
ultimate challenge in the form of the Balrog, but 
only foolish or hardy adventurers get that far.

Have you got more than 
one Amiga? Would you like to be 
able to share hard disks between 
them? And how about accessing 
your CDTV from your new A1200? 
Here's Richard Baguley with a 
cheap network solution... 



IT'S MOT UNCOMMON tor people 10 own 
more than one Amiga. Many A 1 200 or A4000 own- 
ers have an old A.MM) in ihe hack of a cupboard 
somewhere. Its (lies*- \nui».i .ilk ionados \%li<> 
probably have an A590 or GVP Impact II hard 
disks for the older machine, which can't be con- 
nected to the new one, since it doesn't have a 
SCSI interlace. So. this expensive disk is useless, 
isn't it? Some people will also have a CDTV which 
they want to use to access 1*0 disk collections, like 
the CDI'I) collections from Almathera systems. 
However, unless you're prepared to do a lot of 
disk loing and hoing, you can't do it, can you? 

FoitlUUUeh. the answer is yes you can, with the 
I'D program I'nrSrl, which enables both the new 
and old machines to access each other's hard 
disks, and happily share both Hies and programs. 




Somt programs will happily run across a ParNct link. 
Hara, Almathera Systems CD Fractal Universe is benefit- 
ing from the extra power of an A3000.

This 

month's sub- 
scribers' disk contains an 

exclusive new version of Vernon Grainers' excel- 
lent ParBench software. This has a variety of bug 
fixes, and all of the documents are now in 
AmigaGuide format making specific information 
easier to find; plus numerous new utilities 
for your enjoyment. 




ParSet works by using a specially 
adapted parallel lead to connect 
the two machines together, and the 
software sets up a new device called 
'NET:'. Once this is up and run- 
ning, you can read or write to any 
machine on either disk, or even 
run programs from the other 
machine's hard disk. You also only 
need one of the computers' mouse 
and keyboard to control boih 
machines, which leaves you with a 
less cluttered desk. 

The process sounds complex, 

but fortunately most of the fiddly 

details have been deal) With 

American shareware programmer 

Vernon (irainei has taken the teeh Accessing dftta from ttu- remote machine using f.iriu-nth r, just -i qu ffl o n 

. , ,, . - , , of using the device called 'NET:'. This is Directory Opus running on an 

meal l'ar\rl software and crt- aI ed M0QO a{teIsing Pandora . s c0 on . C0TV . 

ParBench, which includes script rou- 
tines to install and run the technical ParXrl 
software. Also included is full documentation 
detailing how to install and run the system. 

Installing I'.ulVmli does require <\ special 
lead, but this isn't difficult to make up yourself, 
and lull details are included in the documents? 
lion. Alternatively, several companies such as Indi 
Direct (0543 419999) or Almathera systems (OH I 
683 6418) will sell you a ready made lead. As you'd 
expect, using ParBench is not as fast as using a 
normal disk. For instance, starling DPaint IV from 
the hard disk of an A-'WMMI look four seconds, but 




over the ParNci link it look nine seconds. It's 
nowhere near as last as buying a new hard disk, 
but it's much cheaper. 

Plus, the benefits of having two machines have 
to Ik- considered. It you're into ra\ tracing, you 
could have both machines rendering different 
frames from the same animation, or have one 
machine rendering an animation while you're 
working on another. It's not an ideal solution to the 
problem of connecting several Amigas together, 
but until Commodore decide to release it' network 
system (called 'Envoy*), it's the best we've got. O 






JARGON BUSTING 

The world of Public Domain is full of confusing terms and names. Here at Amiga Format we aim 
to demystify this world, so here's an easy guide to PD speak. 



- Any software (games/serious 
utilities/demos) which is in the Public Domain (PD) 
can be freely copied and distributed by anybody. 
as long as no money - beyond the cost of the disk 
- actually changes hands. If anybody tries to 
charge you more than around £2 for a disk, go 
elsewhere. You are also allowed to make copies 
of PD disks and distribute them to friends your- 
self, again as long as you're not making a profit 
on them. 

SHAREWARE - iust to confuse matters, many PD 
disks will contain programs that are described as 
shareware. This means that the freely dis- 
tributable version on the disk is disabled in some 
way, and the full version is obtainable by sending 
sum to the author. For instance, the freely 
ibutable version of Stefan Boberg's excellent 
archiving utility LHA is slower than the registered 
version, and has several commands missing. If you 
send $20 to his address in Sweden, he will send 
you the full version. Some people distribute the 



full version, but with the proviso that if you use 
the program regularly, you should send them a 
small registration fee. 

UCEMSEWARf - This is somewhere between PD 
and commercial programs - that is because you 
are not allowed to distribute them, but they don't 
cost much This concept was pioneered by the 
Central Lkenseware Register, a group of PD 
libraries who banded together to promote the 
Lkenseware concept with the slogan 'Commercial 
quality games at a PD price'. A Lkenseware disk 
will probably cost you less than £5, but the quality 
of the programs tends to be much higher than 
many PD programs. 

WHtSKEYWARE - A new concept pioneered by 
Millennium programmer Toby Simpson, where you 
get the full registered version of the program by 
sending him a bottle of (decent) whiskey. So far, 
he's claiming great success for this concept and 
his drinks cabinet is not complaining either.

HEADING 
FOR HOME 

PD SOFT, DISKS 



/ r 



Fancy a quality ray-traced animation? You won't 
find a better quality anim than Heading For Home, 
I can tell you. HAM mode is used to its full, but 
even though if s 3Mb in size, it's only a few sec- 
onds long. A small spaceship circles a planet then 
swings out towards the camera, where it docks 
with an orbiting spacestation - and that's it! 

Still, for technical excellence this ranks right 
up there with the best from Tobias Richter and 
Craig Collins - and it isn't as dark as most of those 
guys' work, so it's much more defined and colour- 
ful. Brief but brilliant. 




Heading For Home, though very short, is a great exam- 
ple of a ray-traced animation. Here a spaceship floats 
towards the dock of a space station... 




...but then It's spotted leaving the space station at a 
rapid rate. Again the space ram-raider has struck with 
alarming precision. Well, you make up a better story! 



DEEP SPACE 



SUDE 



DISK 310B 

Trekkies everywhere wilt recognise the name 
Deep Space Nine as the new off-shoot of Star Trek: 
The Next Generation. This slideshow is several 
stills digitised from video, and loaded up one by 
one from disk. Trek fans will adore it because it 
features the characters you know and love, but 
the digitising is pretty awful. Digitised in HAM 
mode, some pictures are fine, but most are 
extremely blurred, sometimes to the point of not 
being able to recognise the images. 

This on* is purely for the Trekkies among us. 




PD SOFT DISK 3080 



1)1 \u> 




Gleru vectors seem to be a real favourite on the Public 
Domain demo scene at the moment. The problem is, it's 
difficult to see exactly why. 

More vectors I'm afraid, but ibis time ihcj are 
impressive transparent Glen/ vectors as well as 
light-sourced ones. Sadly, though, they do n«'i bor- 
ing. Fortunately, ai the end of ibis demo there's a 
link' animation with a few spacecraft zipping 
around (the) look lemarkahb like ( obras It-'in 

Elite), so ii \ worth persevering foi thai ai least.

If your idea of fun is spending a day at the photolab in

but that would also mean you're a sad individual. 

Quite why anyone would wani this disk is reallv 
beyond me. All thai you get is a colleetion of dim- 
used pictures that were taken ai a party attended 

by members Ol various demo groups. 

The pictures are ol a lairh good quality, but 
What's the point? It's a bii like looking at photos ol

BRIGHT SCART 

From: Matthew Child. Ashford 

With reference to the advice you gave on SCART 
RGB connections in Amiga Format 45; if s wrong! 
Or at least not quite right Notably pin 8, which 
as you say, forces a SCART TV into AV mode, not 
RGB as you stated. This means if a 12 volt signal 
is applied to pin 8. the TV expects a composite 
signal on pin 20 and completely ignores separ; " 
Red, Green and Blue signals. 

To obtain RGB Input selection, you have to 
feed S volts to pin 16 of the SCART socket. On 
some SCART TVs you can select RGB via the h 
set or a switch built into the unit but the ab< 
method makes it automatic. Note that i 
video still needs to go to pin 20, since that's 
where the TV gets its synchronisation signal. 

Once this is done, you still have to select 
on the TV, unless a lead Is still connected from 
pin 22 of the Amiga to pin 8 on the SCART : 
since this automatically selects SCART input To 
recap; pin 8 instructs the TV to switch to SCART 



IN 

From: M Milestone, I'eteriee 
Some weeks ago I bought a Panasonic KX-P2I23 
colour printer. I have no complaints about the 
printer, but I am finding it impossible to find a 
driver for it. To my horror I have found it impossi- 
ble to locate one of the drivers recommended in 
the printer's handbook. The manufacturers rec- 
ommend either KXP2123. KX-PU23 or Epson 
LQ8(>0. I have to this day never found a recom- 
mended driver! 

In my hunt for the elusive driver I contacted 
Panasonic themselves. After explaining what my 
problem was, she told me to contact a wholesaler 
and gave me the telephone number. I contacted 
them and got an unhelpful reply. It seems that 
because I don't sell the things I'm some sort of 
low life who dared to ask for help and the) "could 
not help because I was not trade". 

So. it remains for me to use the KpsonQ 
driver, which is not giving me anything like the 
print quality that the printer can supply. Please 
can you put me in contact with somebody who can 
help? And why don't Panasonic supply a driver 
with the printer? 

First, I understand dial Panasonii haw recently 
hired some Amiga people t<» < I* > a version "l ('.hern 
hint Managrr. When this appcarx - should Ih- 
a round t )< toher - you will see ii advertised wideh in 
ihe Amiga press, So keep youi eves peeled, 

Second, iliis altitude «>l "you are |usi an end 
user" in still ver) common, ' Mun it i> easiei to talk 
to .i local computer dcalci who usually knows jusi 
as much as the manufacturei and is a loi more 
helpful However, Panasonic are currenth in the 
process of doing some spe< ific Amiga drivers, 

friird, some ol the Amiga prime I drivers you 
< urreuil) own do drive the printer, albeit noi al its 
besi resolution. 

You ma\ urn have to wait for Panasonii to i re- 



input and pin 16 tells it to select RGB input Both 
must be connected for the TV to automatically 
display the Amiga screen when the computer is 
turned on. 

Thanks for the correction. Why do people invent stan 
dards like SCART and then make TVs and monitors that 

'the same cable?

OPTIONS: FEW 

From: Michael Kee, Wohtrhampton 

I have owned an A600 for almost a year and have 
bought a 1Mb expansion for it I am interested in 
expanding the memory some more, so: 

1) What's the maximum amount of memory possi- 
ble on an A600? 

Theoretically at least 9Mb, but realistically only 6Mb. 
That's 1Mb built into the machine, a 1Mb trapdoor 
expansion (which you already have) and a 4Mb PCMCIA 
card fitted in the slot on the left of the machine If you 
don't want quite that much. PCMCIA cards are also 
available in 2Mb sizes Expect to pay £190 for 4Mb. and 
£120 for 2Mb 



2) What chips should I get? 

You cannot actually plug chips in anyway on the A600, 




The Info screen in all its glory. This is where you deter- 
mine what program is run when you click on the icon.

COMPILER NEEDED 

Frvm: Si Bishop. Sheffield 
I am currently undergoing an engineering degree 
where I have to wrile programs in Turbo C++ on 
the PC* The majority of students on mv course 
own IBM PC compatibles, giving them the ability 
to work on iheir assignments when not at college. I 
am a loyal Amiga owner and have been for some 
time, and I currently own an A 1 200 with a 120Mb 
hard drive* which means I have to write all the 
assignments al college* 

Please could you recommend an affordable C 
compiler for the Amiga which Is compatible with 
C++ on the PC, so that I could write and debug my 
programs at home and then use CrossDos to com- 
pile the code at college for grading. 

U*s a li-i * »i work t*> write two versions ol your pro- 

41 ams lone Which WOI ks ,il hi une and one al 



euept in the Kick start locket Since you already 
have the Kicfcstart 2 chip there (tor Workbench 2), 
the only reason for fitting a different 1 i ROM (or 
1 1 and 2 together m a ROM sharer) is to run older 
software that needs Kxfcstart 1 3 All the other chips 
are soldered m to the board, and smce it is a board that 
has been created using surface mount tec hnlogy, taking 
them out ao^n rs a ma/or task 

3) How do I fit the chips? 

PCMCIA cards just slot into the machine, preferably 
when it's turned off I know that m theory you can plug 
PCMCIA cards m anybme. but it's best to onry connect 
anything to a computer with the power off 

4) Are you planni n g to do a Super Amiga' feature, 
(see Arrwg* Format 38). but this time basing It on 
the A6O0 instead of the ASOO? 

It is a possibility, but at the moment the A600 is the least

college). Vim will be continual!) converting from 
one to the oilier. The closest Amiga C compiler to 

C++ is SAS C (which used to Im- called Lattice C) 
from HiSoli. lot £329. which include* free and 
unlimited technical support I understand that 

SAS arc produting a < • * toiupilci loi I he Amiga, 
bin it won't he available undl late 199:1 at the earli- 
est. There are main PD versions of C available, but 

none (hat would be compatible with Tuibo C++. 

A much cheaper but less sure wa\ would be to 
get a PC emulator for your A1200. and run the PC 
version of C++. No hardware emulator** ,ue avail- 
able fol this machine vet. but the PI) Shareware 
PC Task emulator program will cost a maximum of 
E30 (including postage and packing to the author 
in New Zealand) . 

The best thing to do first is get the demo ver- 
sion and see if it runs the PC program, Most I'D 
libraries slock this (although thev probablv won't 
know u's only a demo). The demo can run PC 
programs, but the full version is better, since it 
comes with more utilities for transferring informa- 
tion and much more documentation. There is a 
new version of /T Task just released which will be 
reviewed next mouth in AE 

Could you please tell me if it is possible to remove 
the 020 chip from the A1200 and replace it with a 
faster 030 or 040 chip. Would any soldering 
be involved? 

No. I'm afraid it isn't as simple as just whipping 
out one chip and plugging in another, you would 
have to make .i bus interlace for the new process- >r 
and attach n to the trapdoor, except that vou 
wouldn't be able to power the current '040 chip 
through that port properly and il would be even 
harder to prevent the huge beast from melting 
through the bottom of your machine. It would be 
much easier (and probably cheaper) to buy either

HAM IT UP 

From: Larry Can ill, Aylesford 
As an avid reader of Amiga Format I noticed many 
enquiries about loading HAM pictures into Deluxe 
Paint III. Although you arc technically right to say 
you cannot paint on a HAM screen with that 
program, there is a way to load in HAM graphics 
into DPaint III. 

All you have to do is load the image via the 
Brush Load menu option, rather than the 
Picture/Load option. Sometimes by using the 
Brush/Colour option, a near perfect copy of the 





Although OPsint III can't really load in HAM Image*, you 
can get *om* weird effects if you try it... 

original HAM picture can be obtained. Even when 
it doesn't work, some strange and interesting 
results can be achieved. It can also help to alter 
the background colour somewhat. 

This is caused b) DPttint loading the HAM regis- 
ters as colour map information, but it does

HIDDEN KEYS 

From: R Crayfnrd, Ealing 
While messing around with VistaPro 3, I discovered 
it has about 20 keyboard commands that arc not 
mentioned either in the menus or in the documen- 
tation. I haven't quite worked out what some of 
them do - these are marked with a question mark: 

Kl = View. Shows rendering in progress or last ren- 
dered picture. 

F2 = Goes back to the Control Panel screen. 
F3 = Brings up Save IFF24 requester. 
F*l = Enables Disables ignore black ? 
F6 = Swaps Quads, swaps the quarters of the 
map around. 
F7 = Starts Erode ? 
F8 = Redraws map. 

F9 = Enables Disables Extended HAMS. 
F10 = Redraws screen. 
1,2,4,8 = Changes Polygon size. 
Q = Disables /Enables Show image. 
E = Evens Edges? 
R = Renders Image. 




T = Places target at mouse pointer position. 

P = Brings up colour map editor screen. 

A = Writes eurTcnt camera and target positions to 

VistaPro. pre fs file in your S directory. 

F = Generates random number DEM. 

C = Places camera at mouse pointer position.

PRICE MARGIN 

From: S Hally, Ealing 
About a week ago, I picked up my friend's copy of 
an Acorn Archimedes magazine, and started flick- 
ing dirough il. 1 was thinking of buying a printer, 
so I looked at some advertised prices. Why are 
advertised printers so much lower than recom- 
mended retail prices? Do they work on Amigas, 
specifically the A500 Plus? 

The RRP of a printer is undercut by the retailer. 
The reason for this is, of course, competition. 
Most of the printers vou will see advertised in 
Amiga mags will be at significantly less than their 
RRP value too. 

.As for whether a given printer will work on an 
A500+, it depends on cables and drivers. If, how- 
ever, you are saying "Can I buy the same model of 
Citizen/ Epson/Star Panasonic from an Arch- 
imedes dealer" then the answer is yes. 

It usually doesn't matter where you bu) it 
from - very few printers are made machine spe- 
cific except for export to a few obscure foreign 
parts. If in doubt, just phone the dealer and ask, 
thev arc bound to know. 



Th« above keyboard commands for Vista should aid 
your use of this great program.. 



From: Kenneth Lyon, Greenock 
I have been the proud owner of an A500 for a few- 
years. Not so long ago, after relentless ejecting of 
disks, my drive eject button broke. I read in 
AFZ'i that a replacement is almost impossible to 
come across, but I've found out where you get 
them from! 

A replacement can be had from CPC Limited, 
186-200 North Road, Preston PR1 1YP. 0772 
555034. It costs £5.89 including VAT and all that 
nonsense. In addition, CPC. are official dealers for 
Commodore, Amstrad and have manv other makes 
of spare parts. The only drawback is that fitting 
such spares invalidates your warranty, but then 
again I didn't have one anymore. 

Thanks for pointing it out. 

NEW USER 

From: David Caudle 
I'm thinking about buying an Amiga, and because 
they are cheap I'm thinking of going for an A600. 

I'he good [mints about the A600 are its small size. 
it's easy to plug into a TV rather than a monitor 
(compared i<» an A500), simple memory expan- 
sion via PCM< J A card, and of course the price. It's 
a good Amiga to get if vou have never owned a 
computer before. The bad points are it's slow, it 
lacks the new \< . A screen modes and a numeric 
keypad, which means some serious software and 
simulations are unusable, or at least \ou can't 
access some options. Itecause you can't hit the ke\ 
to access them. (Also scc't )ptions: Few' box.) O

What exactly is an emulator? 



Sine* the early Seventies, many different 
I microcomputer systems have been invented. 
In general, computers from two different manu- 
facturers are incompatible - you cannot take a 
program from one machine, and load it into 
another. 

An emulator is a method by which a com- 
puter can run software designed for a different 
computer. Such emulators are nevvr 100 per cent 
effective - there are always oddball programs 
which defeat emulators. How well an emulator 
works depends on how the software for the 
emulated computer was written. 

On the Amiga, several emulators are avail- 
able, mostly for the IBM PC. The reason why PC 
emulators are so successful is that PC software is 



written to work on machines from different man- 
ufacturers. Most emulators rely on a hardware 
expansion to give more compatibility, although 
there are a few emulators that just come on disk 
(nearly all of these are available through the 
Public Domain). 




PC emulator* like this one from KCS enable Amiga 
users to extend their use of software to programs 
written for the PC 







I cannot work out how to load samples in 
ProTracker V3. 1 1 B. How can I do this? 



A Just click on Disk Ops. find the sample with 
the file requester, and click on the name. 
Pn/TrarkfT always assumes that you are trying to 
load in a sample - you have to click on a save but- 
ton to get it to save things, otherwise il loads lliem. 
It's too clever by hall for a lot of beginners! 



o 



How do I get Prodata to search through a 
database without il taking ages? 



At*rodata stores databases on disks. It vou are 
searching through a database tin a tloppv 
disk, then it takes a long time to search through as 
floppv disks have fairly slow access times. The rea- 
son whv frodatii behaves like this is because vour 
database si/e is limited by how big vour disk is. 

Assuming that vou have 2Mb of RAM or more, 
then one siiaightforward solution is to copy the 
database to your RAM disk, and work on il from 
there. To do ibis, load vour database as normal, 
and then press C (for change directory) from the 

Alter/Create database menu. Enter RAM: for vour 

new directory name, and then save vour database 
That should speed up your searches significantly. 







What is C? 



AC is a popular programming language 
invented b\ two blokes called kemighan and 
Ritchie. Although not as fast as machine code, it's 
popular because it is very portable. Thai means 
that .1 C program on one computet is f.tirlv easy to 
transfer to a different computer, assuming that the 
C language is available on both computers, 

C is especially popular on the Amiga localise 
it's the easiest language to use for the built-in rou- 
tines inside the Amiga. Most 'serious' software and 
a few games are written in the C language. 

01 have three separate expansions that fit into 
the parallel port. Is there a switcher box so I 
can have all three plugged in, and select which one 
I use with a switch? 



A 



Yes. such a box is available from I rilogic 

(0*J7l 691 115) foi £28.99 including P&P. 



0\Vhy do you advise people to use Shell to 
copy the Coverdisk? Why not use the 
Duplicate option on Workbench? Surely it's much 
easier to point and click rather than type a line 
into Shell? 

A The Duplicate opuon is noi as reliable as it 
should be on earlier versions of Workbench, 

Il also has the annoving side elleci of adding 
"Copy of" to the name of the disk. Using Diskcopv 
works equally well on all Amigas and is a good 
example of a Shell command. 







How can I install a disk with only one disk 
drive? 



ABv install, I assume vou want to put a boot- 
block on to the disk so thai i( (an auioboot 
It's no good just typing this into the Shell ;- 

Insto 

Instead, vou have to do il in two stages. First, type 
ibis and hit return: 

Install . 



When ever I have tried to compile an AMOS 
program. I get a message saying 'program 
not tested' What am I doing wrong? 

A in AMOS, before a program is run. AMOS tests it to 
try to find simple typing errors Before you compile 
a program, you must test it from AMOS (dick on the

Which is better, CD 32 or the A 1 200? I want to

Aln terms ol computer specifications, they are 
very similar. The CD 32 is basically an A 1200 
optimised I'm games. In time vou will l>e able to 
run a word pro* essor or paint program on CD**. 
The machine has the potential to accept a key-

Do sound samplers (like Tcehnosound) have 
a built-in microphone? 



A No. ilu-v have two phono sockets l<n hit and 
right Rereo sampling. It's simple to plug a 
microphone into .t sound sampler with a phono 
adaptor. Ilowevei, sampling Irom a live' source 
like this produces pooi results, unless voti do it in 
an acoustically dead room, like a recording studio. 







How do I increase the amount of chip RAM 
in my AI 200? 



A Yon cannot. _'\H> is the limit, and that's what 
von gel with the machine. Ilowevei. adding 
some fast RAM will leave more chip RAM free 
than you present!) have. 







What is the point of having a hard drive? 



Loading speed. A hard drives massive speed 
advantage versus a floppy, or even a CD, means 
vou spend more lime using vour computer and 
less lime waiting for things to load and save. It's 
also convenient to have all vour programs and files 
one ilisk, a-- vou don'l have lo waste time swapping 
iloppv disks, hut rememhci - main games do not 
inslall properly to a hard disk. Also, a point for AA 
chipset machines is thai if a game only works by 
holding down hoth mouse buttons and selecting 
rXS graphics mode, then vou have to do that 
before running the game from your hard disk. 







What is a checksum "880" error? 



A Alter WoiklK-nch has loaded, the Amiga does 
a set procedure on any iloppv disks lh.it are 

inserted, First it looks ai the bootblock* If this 

looks like a standard AmigaDOS l>ootl)lock. then 
ii attempts to read the director.' of the disk (which 
is on block 880> to see how full the disk is. If the 
bootblock is non-standard, then the disk is almost 
certainlv not an AmigaDOS disk, and cannot be 
accessed through Workbench or the Shell. 

You usually gel ibis error when a Workbench- 
like bootblock has been put on to a non- 
WorklM'iich games disk I he \niiga sa\s "it's an 
Amiga disk, but the directory track is corrupt - the 
checksum is wrong". This sounds unlikelv. but it's 
exactlv the Ixluviour of an Amiga *x»otbloek virus. 
Iven il it is not a virus, the original bootblock has 
been erased, and you cannot get it back. The disk 
will not work. II this happens to an original game 
disk, then software companies usually oiler a 
repair service for a small fee. One way to avoid this 
is to use a program like limit X to remember and 
store all vour game hoot blocks on a separate disks. 
But if you alreadv have the error, the damage is 
done and will spread in vour disks as you use them. 

ODoes the A4 000/ 040 have the full version of 
the 68040 chip, or the economy (EC) version 
without a PPU? 

A The full version. Commodore planned two 
versions, but have since opted for machines 
with the lull version of the liNOiO chip. This means 
it's more expensive, but it dues reduce incompata- 
bililv to a small extent, as older programs which 
expect a full <>8<M0 gel just that. £>

l he Denis* chip found on older Amiga* contains a graphics 
co-processor which enables Denise to make use of graphic 
effects such as pull down menus. 



matically handles the conversion of ptnels' colours 
much faster than the processor could do it. 



1 Nearly every single Amiga screen you see 
exists inside the machine as a series of bit- 
planes. A bitplane is a continuous block of 
memory, which is channelled to the video chip in 
the Amiga (which is called Denise on older 
Amigas and Lisa on the AA chip set machines). 
This process happens continuously, and cannot be 
interrupted - otherwise Amiga screens would be 
corrupted and would flicker. 

2 The reason why interlaced graphics flicker is 
more to do with the bad points about how 
television screens work than the Amiga's graph* 
ics hardware. In general, you only get a flickery 
interlaced screen when two contrasting colours 
(black and white, for instance) are displayed one 
above the other. Interlace displays a screen in 
two passes, so as far as the TV is concerned, part 
of the screen is flashing between black and 
white, this causes the flicker. 

3Bitplanes an usually large, and so a custom 
chip is used to move them around faster in 
memory from one place to another. This move- 
ment of bitplane data is called a block image 
transfer, or Wit. The blitter chip can override the 
processor while it is doing this (it can copy the 
screen much faster than the processor) but it can- 
not override the video chip. 

4 Hardware sprites are usually small, fast mov- 
ing graphics that slide smoothly over 
existing graphics without interfering with them. 
These are not put into the bitplanes. It's a lot 
faster if the video chip overlays them on top of 
the bitplanes. Previously, Amiga hardware sprites 
were limited to 16 pixels in width at most But 
AA chip set machines allow you to have sprites 
up to 64 pixels wide, which makes them a lot 
more useful. 

5 One rare feature of the Amiga is the co-pro- 
cessor chip, or copper for short This is a mini 
processor with only three instructions, that 
works at the same time as the main processor. 
The copper can wait until the video display 
reaches a certain point on the screen; it can load 
hardware registers very quickly when this hap- 
pens; and it can also skip instructions. It's most 
commonly used to produce the finely graduated 
coloured backgrounds that are often seen in plat- 
form games. 



The planar chip in the CD" is the first new 
1 piece of graphics hardware that an Amiga 
has received. The trouble with bitplanes Is that 
in order to set one pixel to one particular colour, 
you have to write to each bitplane that the 
colour uses. If a screen has 256 colour, that 
means writing to eight different locations just to 
set one pixel to one colour. The planar chip per- 
forms this task automatically and much more 
quickly than the processor could do it. 

I Although it may seem that only games ever 
use any of this hardware, in actual fact many 
programs use them to a greater or lesser extent. 
For instance, the program Photon Paint 2 makes 
extensive use of the copper chip in order to keep 
all of the screen tools visible on screen. Many 
flight sims use hardware sprites to represent the 
struts in an airplane cockpit. The copper chip is 
used when a colour is only used in one area of 



One graphics trick that the hardware cannot 
__ do very easily is to rotate and scale bit- 
planes. All of the 3D driving games for the Amiga 
display 'flat' graphics that get bigger or smaller 
on the screen. Some consoles %rm now introduc- 
ing chips to do this. Some programmers feel that 
hardware to manipulate flat graphics as 3D 
ob j e cts would be much more useful to the CD32 
than a Planar chip. 

9 Genlocks can cause problems with game 
graphics. A genlock synchronises the Amiga's 
display with an incoming video signal, from a 
video recorder or camcorder, rf the external sync 
clashes with a game, then the game's graphics 
corrupt and the computer can crash very easily. 
So if you have a genlock linked up. don't expect 
to be able to play games. 

3 As the Amiga's graphics chips have 
evolved, they have also changed. These 
changes occasionally result in software Incompat- 
ibility, and so some games will work fine on one 
A 500, but not on another. Most of these prob- 
lems result in older programs not working on 
newer Amigas, however some newer games also 
don't work on older Amigas. It is sometimes pos- 
sible to improve these problems by upgrading 
the chipset. But when the chips are dramatically 
redesigned, you have to buy a new machine.

A WORD 
FROM THE ED 




OK. you get your way in the end. 
From Ihe next issue of Amiga 
Format, we will be giving away 
working versions of commercial 
programs on the second disk. 

We gave up the idea a few 
months ago. in the belief thai we 
were becoming repetitive. We felt 
that the disks might not have 
been offering excellent value. 
And judging by some of the 
things we've seen on disks over 
the summer, we were right. 

But while we were doing the 
single disk issues we were search- 
ing for quality packages to bring 
you in the future. This month we 
unveil the first of these. Turbo 
I'r i'i( 2 is an excellent package, it 
will improve the print quality of 
most applications with various 
printers - and it's just the first of 
many. Over the next few months 
we'll be bringing you some of the 
very best in Amiga software. 

So if you don't subscribe to 
Amiga Format now's the lime to. 
This month you get a sub for the 
single disk price.You also get the 
special subscribers' disk. Meaning 
a huge three disks a month. 

If you are one of those people 
for who £50 is too much to shell 
out at once, don't worry! Well 
still be bringing you a full disk of 
game demos and a full serious 
application every month. 

And those of vou who have 
been caught out by other mags, 
remember: with AF* if it doesn't 
say demo on the disk label, then 
it isn't a demo!

I am writing almul a subject I have 
not seen discussed in your letters 
pages before. 

I have had the idea of designing a 
disk-based magazine which I warn i<> 
distribute through the Public

sort 4il thing, at least not legally 
(mentioning no names). 

I work in close proximity to a 
local I'D and thev have offered to 
help me when the magazine is in its 
entirety. My main problem lies in the 
l< :;al aspects of such a venture. I waul 
to cover as many subjects and attract 
as much public response as possible, 
hut at iIk- same lime I do not wain to 
tuad on anvone's toes. 

Please help me.

We aien V quite clear what kind of fielp 
you require. Hut if your concerns are those 
of legality, the only precautions you have 
to take air to avoid infringing anyone's 
cofnrigbt, or breaking any other laws. 
Simply make sure all the text and graph- 
it s on the dish are your own work, or that 
you have fH-rmiwion to use it, and then 
you should be all right. You must fa sure 
not to break the obscenity, official secrets, 
and prevention of terrorism laws too.

With respect to

regular and dedicated readers for their 
loyalty to the mag. Yon. and fteople like 
yourself ol/vtousty (all into this category. 



and it would be nice to be ahle to extend 
the second disk to you also. Hut the main 
reason uv are able to offer the second di\k 
is that the cost of subscription copies of the 
magazine does not involve a cut for the 
distribution company and retailer. So we 
can include the subs disk free of charge. 

I am not sure that uy can sell the subs 
disk to you. It could get very fiddly selling 
things with a nominal unit value, the 
fxrstagr and packing may end up costing 
more than the disk. We are aware that 
there are people who cannot subscribe for 
financial reasons, or that buy the maga- 
zine regularly from the neivs agent. If 
there is any way we can practically bring 
the second disk to these people, we wilt. 

THANKS 

Just a quick note to say that it's about 
lime subscribers were rewarded loi 
shelling out up front. The sub- 
scribers disk is an excellent idea - 
keep it up! 

M Ferrier, Louth 

Thanks to all of you who haw umtten 
and phoned to express your appreciation 
of the subscribers disk. Hut BM hair 
always tried to offer that bit extra to sub- 
scribers, two extra issues or an item of free 
software were the chosen incentives before 
the disk came along. These two options 
are still available at a small extra cost, 
but they still represent a bargain. 

FIX FANX 

Just a quick letter to thank you for 
the Speedball 2 fix for the AI200. It 
has been my favourite game to have a 
quick bash on for ages, but I always 
had to get the trusty old A500 out to 
play it This fix saves me loads of has- 
sle and I'm truly grateful to you and 
the author. Please produce more of 
these fixes in the future. I'm sure 
there must be plentv of people out 
there with old A500 games which 
they would love to be able to play on 
their A 1200s. 

Dave Bragg, Leamington Spa 

We too would like to extend our thanks to 
Phili HHjor those cheats. Speedball 2 is 
one of my fjcrstmal favourites, and only 
being ahle to play it in the office (I've only 
got an A 1 200 at home) was really begin- 
ning to get on my nerves. What I really 
want noti' is a SWIV fix.

James Shaw, Nottingham. 

Yes, you do! 

BASICALLY... 

I have just purchased an Amiga 1200 
which I In-lieve to 1h- ;i sen |H»wei1ul 
and capable machine lor ihe price I 
paid. But I was dismayed lo liixl that 
it did not come with any program- 
ming languages. This i>. most 
inconvenient since the main reason 
for me buving a computer was so 
that I could write my own software. If 
I just wanted to play games I would 
have iHiughi a Sega console. 

I have contacted a few software 
suppliers, bui none of thein were able 
to help me. so I wonder il vou can. 

What I am alter is a version ol '( !' 
BASK o, PASCAL which is I (HI per 
cent compatible with the A1200. and 
is able to use its sound and graphics 
capabilities fully, as well as perform 



standard programming functions 
such as disk file creation and multi- 
dimension arrays. Do you know of 
any thai are axailable. or that are 
soon to be released? 

F Cleaves, GiUingham 

We certainly do know of a few program- 
ming languages. If you want to try you 
hand with an advanced HASH'., then huy 
next month's eofry of Amiga Formal. On 
the set tool ( >n*n disk you will find a work- 
ing version of Acid Software's Blii/ 
Basic, a pawerfu I programming language 
that is extremely fast. 

If you like the language, and tee know 
that you will, you can get hold of an 
upgrade for your tUn'erdisk - an 
advanced users fmck - which offers many 
extra features, and a compiler so that you 
can create standalone appluations from 
youi programs. Amiga Formal issue 52 

is on sale 23 September. 

UNRELIABILITY 

I have a friend who owns an Amiga 
500 which is roughly six yean old 
and crashes (resets spontaneously) 
even lo minutes or so. Til is is 

rather frustrating, especially since we 
have an Amiga 500 which is about 
loin wars old. Can we expect it lo 
start crashing and having real prob- 
lems in a lew vears lime? Why aren't 

■ 

Amigas made lo last. 

We also have a (aimmodore 64 
which was bought se<ondhaud ill 
I986 and has only been repaired 
once in seven years. Whv aren't 
some "! today's improved tojuif-t he- 
range computers able lo last like the 

old primitives? 

Michael Saunders, 
Warragul, Australia 

Don't lie pessimistic, just Iwause you 
have a friend whose Amiga has gime Mly 
up doesn t mean that yours will We have 
many Amigas in the office that have 
endured treatment (or should we say 
ahuset that would send most mat hints to 
the saafryard, yet they keep soldiering on 
with admirable endurance. 

As with many electrical appliances 
and electronic dex'ices, tlure are some duff 
Amigas, but the number is nowhere near 
as high as you seem to think.

'Home-made' machine? 

As a result of being caught out by one of The Big C's marketing cons 
(buying an A500 plus just before they were discontinued) I was reluc- 
tant to buy an AGA model until I read At-, glowing review of the 
A4000/030, so I got a 4Mb RAM 120Mb hard drive version. First 
Computer Centre in Leeds supplied it. but they sent me a 2Mb 
RAM/80Mb version fitted with an extra 2Mb of RAM and a 120Mb 
drive. To fit these they had opened the case, destroying the warranty 
sticker. And the badge on the front of the machine says A4000/ECO 30. 
When ordered it I did not expect a 'home-made' A4000. 

a) Has the normal' A4000/030 got a 68030 or a 68EC030 CPU? 

b) Is this sort of malpractice illegal? 

c) Is my warranty worthless? 

d) Have I got a 'down specified' machine? 

e) What should I do? 

Rfick Parkin, Brighton 

a) l he 40001030 has the 68EC030 fitted by Commodore as standard, 
and this is commonly described as an 030 or 68030 chip, so your 
machine has the right processor fitted. 

b) If by 'malpractice' you are referring to First fitting the RAM and 
upgrading the hard disk themselves, let me clarify the situation. The 
A4000I030 is shipped by Commodore with 2Mb of RAM - either be 1*1 
or 2*0 - and with a choice of 85 or 120Mb hard disks. Any extra RAM 
and hard disks are supplied and fitted by the dealer, should the need 
arise. It appears First Computer did nothing remotely illegal. 

c) The warranty is only made void if an unqualified person attempts a 
repair or upgrade. Due to its open architecture it is expected that 
users will need dealers to add items. So your warranty is still valid. 

d) No, you definitely do not have a 'down specified' machine. 

e) Use and enjoy your A4000I030. 



Feeling ripped off! 



As one of the many who feel a bit ripped off after buying a CDTV, I 
would like to know if the new Amiga CD 32 will: 

a) Be available at a reduced price upgrade to CDTV owners? 

b) Will our existing keyboards and floppy drives fit the new unit? 

c) Will we be able to attach a printer to CD 32 ? 

d) Will I be able to sue Commodore for making me bankrupt? 

Steve Bailey, Birmingham 

/ am sorry you regret buying a CDTV. When it was released, it was 
hailed as a breakthrough in technology, delivering a powerful stor- 
age media combined with the features of Amiga 500 computing. 

Amiga CD 32 is a games console, the best in the world. Its £299 
price reflects this. This means it is difficult to provide a trade-in offer 
for something that costs less than CDTV. We are looking into this and 
will let Amiga Format know the outcome. If you want to attach a key- 
board, floppy drive and printer, then you'd be better off with an 
A 1200, which is designed for computing, not just playing games. 

It is highly unlikely that Commodore could in any way be consid- 
ered responsible for any financial position you find yourself in.

REPLAY REACTION 

I have an Action Replay Mkl and am 
in need of a copy of the utilities disk 
as mine has had it. I phoned Datel 
but they don't have any. and I adver- 
tised loeallv with no luck. 

If you have one. your help would 
be much appreciated. If not. could 
vou please print this letter. I would 
pay any cost involved if a fellow

DMCS BLUES 

I have recently bought issue 50 of 
Amiga Formal, with what I thought 
was a good music program on the 
Coverdisk. I wanted to print some 
music, and to do that I had to 
save it. What do you know, you've dis- 
abled it. 

Then I tried to print it straight 
off. but found out that you had dis- 



abled die printing system as well. 
Where can I get the full copy, and 
how much is it? 

Matthew Heap, Oswestry 

The version «l Deluxe Music 
Coiitruction Set 2 on our Septem/ier 
(Unvrdisk was merely a demo. We clearly 
stated this on the disk's laM, so it should 
haw come as no surprise to you to dis- 
cmier that some of the features were in 
fact disabled. 

If you want to know mare about the 
complete package, turn now to page 122 
and read the first full rei'iew of the fin- 
isher! software. 

CD ME 

I am thinking of buying a CDTV and 
would like to know the following: 

a) Do you think it is worth me buying 
one at the moment? 

b) Are there any new games being 
planned for CDTV? 

c) When is Microcosm coining out. 
and will it be any good? 

d) I was told that you can't play- 
Amiga games that require a meg and 
a CDTV multimedia system. Is this 
actually correct? 

II it is true, why are Indi selling 
Kick Off 2 with the CDTV, since this 
program requires one meg. 

Robert Elson, Far n ham 

It's very difficult to make recommenda- 
tions as pir as (ID'IY is concerned. If you 
want the ability to use ('J)TV software, 
and do normal computing applications as 
well, then the (J)'IV with a mouse, key- 
Imard and flopjry drive is the only way to 
do it at present. Hut if you only want to 
play games, then the new CJ>* 2 is a much 
belter option. 

There are very few neu' games coming 
out for the CDTV, but there will be loads 
for the Q>*2. 

Microcosm is due to be launched 'at 
the end of the year', hut the only Amiga 
platform it will lie available for will be 

the am. 

The reason that the CJ)TV can only 
play some one meg games is doum to mem- 
ory usage. If a game requires more than 
5I2K to run, it wilt be marketed as a one 
meg game. Hut it may only use 9iH)K. 
These games will work on a CJ)1\, but 
games which use almost all of the memory 
will not have rtxtm to ifork, because the 
(J) dm* uses some mrmory too. 

REYNARD THE NAZI 

I am writing to complain about Titus 
the Fox. It's an excellent game, but I 
do detect a bit of racism in the game. 
I mean it's funny how the evil person 
happens to Ik* a Muslim. If they want 
to discriminate against a religion, 
then why not let il Ik- their own. 

Ahmad Malik 

And what about alt the games where the vil- 
lains are while Anglo-Saxon Protestants?

Ye* - we've got a full, complete and working version of Blitz Bask 2 to give 
away. And that's just what we're going in do on next month's Covcrdisk. 

For those of you who don't know - Hlilz is a very powerful programming 
language capable of producing games and even applications software of 
commercial quality. And Blitz can make full use of Intuition, the Amiga's win- 
dows environment, so you can open screens and windows, and scroll 
smoothly. And because Blitz compiles into 100 per cent machine code, it oper- 
ates incredibl) quickly. 

So you'd better order your copy now if you don't want to miss out! 

VIDEO TOASTER 

The Video Toaster has long been 
acclaimed as one of the best video 
effects peripherals ever to come out on 
the Amiga. It's a genlock, a 24-bit 
graphics card, a real time effects pro- 
cessor and only usable with Un- 
American NTSC video standard. 
Until now, that is. 

Next issue we will be taking a 
look at two new conveners which 
allow you to use the NTSConly 
Toaster 4000 with UK PAL video 
equipment. We'll also be looking 
at the Toaster itself, and the soft- 
ware that comes with it. 

NewTek's Video Toaster has bean out of 
bounds to Amiga users In the UK. This could all be about to 
change - find out why next Issue.

so that you know exactly when they were created. 

Low Power - High density RAMs means low power 
consumption. 

Easy To Fit Fitted in minutes without the need to 
remove the computer's case.

FPU instantly for software that will not run with a maths
